That time-honoured relic, the rush cart, will, as usual, make its annual
appearance, starting from the residence of Mr. Mantle, the promoter, in
Sandy-lane, to-day (Saturday), and perambulating the principal
thoroughfares in the village, afterwards returning to the
before-mentioned starting place, where it will remain for the
delectation of sightseers.
Lymm Morris Dancers
Not to be in the back-ground its invariable satellites, the morris dancers, will
also make their rounds. These are generally bedizened in many coloured
ribbons and streamers, the leader attired in a most grotesque costume,
whilst his eccentric antics combined with the ringing of a bell attached
to his back, and the music and dancing of his companions, never fail to
excite the eager attention of the villagers, whose opinions regarding
the affair, given with grave deliberation, are generally received with
open-mouthed awe by the rustics. On a former occasion an opinion was
vouchsafed that the gambols of the leader "Was nowt compared wi'
owd 'Tubthumper's' ten 'ear sin.".
