Well dressing

This year, for one year only, there’ll be Well Dressing Blessing on Saturday 30th July.

With the Blessing at 1pm, an opportunity for refreshments in Chadkirk Chapel, and the plant stalls and Friends of Chadkirk stall with a range of small treats on offer. Outside the Stockport Silver Band will play.

We’ve had some beautiful designs in the past on a range of interesting themes.
What will this year’s design be?
