Lymm Rushbearing pic special
4:00pm Monday 12th August 2013 in News
THE traditional Rushbearing festival was celebrated in Lymm on Sunday.
Morris dancers, members of Lymm Women’s Institute, and Lymm Youth Club were joined by parish councillors and Mayor Clr Peter Carey on the day.
It sees the procession make its way through the village from Pepper Street to St Mary’s Church for a short service.
Carrying rushes, the tradition dates back to the Middle Ages when reeds and rushes were put on the floor of buildings to prepare for the winter.
The procession was led by Clr Carey and Clr Su Williams, from Lymm Parish Council.
