Gee Cross Well Dressing 2011
As I promised last week here are photographs of some of the displays made for the 2011 Gee Cross Well Dressing.
The Village Green Well outside Sam Redfern Green, was created by the Guides, Brownies and Rainbows. The theme for their 2011 display was "The Brownie Story". The story is learnt by every girl who becomes a Brownie, where she discovers that the "helpful" person is herself. The story is an integral part of the learning process for Brownies and Guides. In 2011 Hyde Chapel celebrates 85 years of Guides and 60 years of Brownies.
The display in the grounds of Hyde Chapel by students at Alder Community High School was a collage created to tell the community about what they like and what they do within the local community.
The 3rd Gee Cross Scouts display was at Baron Road. The scouts are celebrating the opening of their new scout hut. They are now raising funds to allow them to carry out Phase Two of the building that will create an activity hall for the benefit of the wider community as well as the scouts.
A photograph of Booth's Well is on Hyde Daily Photo.
