Extracts from the Press Report
In accordance with a custom which has been observed, with
one or two exceptions, for a considerable number of years, the rushbearing
procession through the village of Lymm took place on Saturday morning
Returned to the hotel, a photograph was taken on the group, as well as of a cart, which contained a quantity of neatly arranged rushes drawn by a gaily caparisoned horse. The procession was then re-formed, and calls were made at the residences of several gentlemen living in the village, the band playing at each place. Arrived at Oak Lea, the residence of Mr. Hall, another photograph was taken, and the party being hospitably entertained returned to the Spread Eagle, were they broke up.
