As Chair of the Wakes Committee, I would just like to thank everyone for their kind comments and letters we received after Wakes. It was a fantastic week as I hope you will all agree. Tideswell was very busy throughout the week, but particularly on Carnival day, which is always nice to see. Just over £1435 was raised by the street collection which took a lot of counting with over £140 in 5p pieces alone! The standard of the house, street and fancy dress decorations was once again very high and the standard just keeps getting better and better, year on year!

Wakes simply wouldn’t happen without a team of willing and reliable volunteers to help us put on fun, enjoyable but above all safe events throughout the week, so a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to making our 70th anniversary year extra special and successful!

Of course, none of this would be possible without the dedicated and hard working Committee members who work all year round to make sure Wakes is a roaring success, so thanks must also go to Caroline, Cathy, Denise, Gillian, Howie, Jo, John, Julie, Liz, Nicky, Paul, Polly and Sharon. Our A.G.M Will be held on Wednesday 05 October 7:30 pm @ George Inn, Tideswell
