Gee Cross Well Dressing 2009
Yesterday I went up to the Well Dressing Ceremony that starts each year from outside the Grapes Hotel.
It was led, as in previous years by the Adamson Band.
I've posted a short video clip on Ackworth Born, Gone West.
Booth's Well was dressed by members of Gee Cross & District Women's Institute whose theme this year was the Bandstand in Hyde Park.
The Village Green Well is the responsibility of the Guides, Brownies and Rainbows. "Changing the World" depicts several of the logos of the Charities the girls have been supporting.
At Hyde Chapel, the display by pupils from Alder Community High School is intended to "remind everyone in our throw away society how important it is to recycle, save energy and conserve our dwindling resources".
I didn't follow the band or visit all the sites this year.
