undefinedIn this town built on salt (literally and economically) the Winnington parish (St Luke's) is working closely with Salt of the Earth, a local Cheshire charity, to put on an afternoon of celebration, crafts and displays.

The event – which aims to celebrate everything about salt and Northwich – will be held at Winnington Park Recreation Club on Sunday 11 May, starting 3pm. Admission and afternoon tea are free.

The event is for all the family. There will be craft-making stalls for the young at heart, technical demonstrations about some of the local industrial practices, and the bar will be open.

On the recreation ground people will see displays from local schools and museums. People will also find information from local Industries, both large and small, and local trusts and charities ( including the Weaver Hall and Nantwich museums) also be telling of their activities.

The Bishop of Birkenhead, the Rt Revd Keith Sinclair, will lead a short, all-age, act of worship as part of the event – to give thanks for all the area has received from salt over the centuries. The afternoon finishes with a full tea.

The Salt of the Earth charity aims to build links between industry, community and churches in Cheshire. Its lead facilitator Henry Ratter said: “We are all looking forward to this event as it will be an exciting opportunity for all the family to celebrate the contribution salt and the associated business sectors have contributed to the life and wealth of Cheshire.”
