2024 Great Winter Get Together

Bunbury village is to host a rural community “Great Winter Get Together” event on January 20th

It’s part of a national initiative aimed at keeping rural communities connected after Christmas and will take place at Bunbury Pavilion. 

The goal is to bring the community together after Christmas, when it can be a difficult time for some people, and beat the post-Christmas blues. As part of the national Jo Cox campaign “The Great Winter Get Together”, Bunbury is to host an event to bring young and old together for an afternoon treat in mid-January.

The aim of the event is to connect people to each other and to services and local activities. Showcasing activities, as well as providing the opportunity to make new connections with visiting services and village groups who will provide a flavour of their work. 

Both Cheshire East Council and Bunbury Parish Council are supporting the event and free tea, coffee and biscuits will be generously served by members of Bunbury WI. 

The afternoon will also include a consultation, giving Bunbury residents the opportunity to have their say about the future of Bunbury and the development of local activities and services that they believe are important to their village and rural life.

Bunbury Coronation Tea Party

Bunbury Parish Council invited the whole village to a Coronation Tea Party on Sunday 7 May to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III. Hundreds of residents of all ages turned up to enjoy the unusually sunny afternoon at Bunbury Jubilee Playing Fields and share food, fun and frolics! 

Pam Brookfield, Chair of Bunbury Parish Council said “I was hoping that the event would prove popular, but the number of friends, families and neighbours that arrived to share the celebration completely surpassed my expectations. Many thanks to local businesses, Tilly’s Coffee Shop and The Yew Tree Inn for supporting the event. It’s not often we get the chance to mark such an occasion for the country and I’m so pleased that Bunbury turned out to celebrate in style”.

Queen’s Green Canopy Tree Planting Ceremony

On Thursday 13 April at 1.30pm, Bunbury Parish Council will be planting a tree as part of the late Queen Elizabeth II Green Canopy initiative adjacent to St Boniface Church in Bunbury.

The Queen’s Green Canopy was an initiative  that began in honour of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2022 to mark her 70 years on the throne.

Communities, charities, schools, councils and individuals were urged to plant trees across the United Kingdom to create a lasting, living legacy to enhance the environment and make local areas greener.

In the summer of 2022 Bunbury Parish Council elected to “plant a tree for the Jubilee” on behalf of Bunbury residents. Sadly, with the Queen’s passing this plan was delayed. However, King Charles, patron of the Queen’s Green Canopy, has urged people to continue planting in memory of the Queen and in honour of her service and leadership. To date over 3 million trees have been planted across the UK, the Commonwealth and in parts of Europe.

Bunbury’s tree is a Tulip Tree (Liriodendron Tulipifera). In years to come it will grow to become a majestic deciduous tree with seasonal interest. As the tree matures it will bear tulip shaped creamy yellow flowers in the Summer and distinctive large lobed leaves that turn a beautiful yellow colour in Autumn. It should enhance the already magnificent trees that grow on the green next to St Boniface Church, in the oldest part of Higher Bunbury.

Please note that parking is extremely limited in the area due to current building works, so if you would like to attend please walk or park away from the immediate area.
