[1913 Rushbearing] Lines from Lymm
St Helens Examiner, 16th August, 1913, p8, c3 

Extracts from Press Report

The village folk sacrificed to the goddess of pleasure this week.
They did not go in for rushbearing, but rushed to the seaside
A few, however kept up the practice handed down from pagan times.
Boys sold bullrushes, and on Saturday night there were lively doings at the cross.
