BEE KEEPING – PETER AND HAZEL SUTCLIFFE
Peter and Hazel keep bees at Clonter, and will be selling the Clonter honey this year at the fair. Very good for any hay fever sufferers, as well as being delicious. Peter and Hazel will also have information about bee keeping for any one who is interested in learning about this amazing tradition.
CAR BOOT SALE
This is where it all began. A group of ladies wishing to do some life laundry. Every year people are queuing outside as the sun has barely lifted its head, eager to find hidden treasures amongst the hive of car booters. Please note that there will be STRICTLY NO ADMISSIONS before 10am.
CHESHIRE TORTOISE GROUP
The Cheshire Tortoise Group are part of the British Chelonia Group (BCG), the charity for the welfare of tortoises, terrapins and sea turtles of the world. Cheshire Group tortoise experts will be at the Clonter fair for help and advice on pet tortoises. Free care sheets and educational information will also be available. Come along and visit the live tortoises at our gazebo. The tortoise stand will also include the sale of selected giftware and collectibles (many with an animal theme) to raise funds towards worldwide conservation.
U3A STEAM PUNK DISPLAY
The first U3A steam punk group in the country!
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction or science fantasy that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. In simplistic terms Steampunk could be described as how Victorians may have envisaged the future after a few tipples!
The U3A, a charity for retired and semi retired people, has 1000 clubs throughout the UK. Congleton U3A boasts what is believed to be the first Steampunk group; a social group, dressed in Steampunk attire that participates at UK Steampunk events. They will be performing some Parasol Duelling around midday.
