We are delighted to have the support of Helping Britain Blossom to lead the wassailing as well as Cheshire Wildlife Trust and Stockport Council’s greenspace team.  And, the Mayor of Stockport and her consort (Councillor Linda Holt and Mr Ken Holt) who will be opening the newly improved Woodland Walk.   Other contributors are the highly popular ‘Do Your Thing’ community choir and the Heatons WI with their fabulous homemade apple cakes.

And, making her first appearance will be Millie the mole as HMVCG’s mascot.  At just over 80cm tall, Milly is a world record holding mole and is quite unmistakable with her long grey snout and gorgeous black velvety coat.  She will  be taking visitors at the HMVCG tent where she will encouraging people to guess the weight of worms her little brother Malcome can eat in a day.   She is looking forward to seeing you all.
