Extracts from Press Report

Rush-bearing Week
Whereas Whitweek is the great holiday time for Manchester, the people of Lymm make rush-bearing week the season of their coming under the spell of the goddess of pleasure. Go the old custom which once surrounded this festive season have to a large extent disappeared, there still exists a few reminding features, such as the band which carried out a good programme at the Cross last Saturday night, and the boys going round selling bullrushes.
