Elizabeth’s ceilidh was a huge success

Dear Sir, — Elizabeth’s Group sends sincere thanks to everyone who came to our fundraising ceilidh at Congleton Town Hall on Saturday.
We were worried that the dreadful weather would put people off but a significant number came and danced, got sweaty and generally had a great time.
The sale of dance and raffle tickets and sponsorship from the Congleton Partnership helped us to raise £750 for our statue fund — just brilliant!
We would also like to say a special thank you to the wonderful ceilidh band, This Way Up, who played for us and their caller, Jane Roberts. They gave their time for free — what stars!
With continuing community support like this we will raise the funds needed to get the statue of Elizabeth Wolstenholme Elmy commissioned. — Yours faithfully,
ELIZABETH’S GROUP COMMITTEE
Congleton.
