[1896] The Rushbearing
Warrington Examiner, 15th August 1896, p5 

Extracts from Press Report

The Rushbearing
For many years the celebrations connected with the annual festival have dwindled away. The former ceremony of decorating the rush cart and marching procession to the Parish Church to hold service and strew the ailes with new rushes has been abandoned.

Lymm Morris Dancers
Three troops of morris dancers paraded the village on Saturday, but the dancers seemed to lack "go" compared with the wild caperings of former years.
