If you take a wander around Tattenhall during July and August you are sure to find a wonderful show of wellies helping to raise money for a community fund.
Tattenhall & District Parish Council have organized a Welly Walk through the village which Bolesworth Estate are pleased to support.
Around 60 residents, community groups and businesses have been putting their best foot forward and creating displays at different points around the village for people to find and enjoy.
Some made use of wooden welly cut outs which the parish council provided and then decorated them with their own designs. Others put their creative talents to use by drawing or painting a picture of their own colourful welly and then sticking it in their window for all to enjoy.
At Bolesworth, we asked for the help of our Head Gardener, Andy Frostick, who created a beautiful ‘Bolesworth Boots in Bloom’ display with the help of a pair of wellingtons and a planter.
It is now on display in the Barbour Square car park by The Lute Player sculpture for all to see.
There’s a very creative and colourful array of other welly displays to enjoy while enjoying a lovely summer walk with friends and family at the same time.
The walk was officially launched on Saturday July 3 and £1 guides are available from Alison’s Country Kitchen, the Spar and the Post Office in the village.
Proceeds from the sale of the guide will go towards the parish council’s Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) fund. This will be boosted by a charity raffle which boasts a host of great prizes including Barbour jackets, a parish council hamper with lots of goodies and tickets for our magical Christmas light trail, new to Bolesworth for 2021.
