The 2014 season of the
Warburton Souling Play has been and gone - all very sad really.
As usual it
started at the Saracen's Head in Warburton on Saturday the 1st
November. We performing for a total of 6 nights this year, the
others being Tuesday 4th Wednesday 5th, Thursday 6th, Friday 7th and
finally Saturday 8th November. This last 'night' was in fact our
usual day of Souling starting in the afternoon at the Warburton Autumn
Fair at St Werburgh's Church on Bent Lane in Warburton and finishing
with the last performance of the year followed by an evening
of singing and music in the Saracen's Head.
The charity this year was one again Cotebrook House
on Oughtrington Lane in Lymm where this year we were able to make a donation of £1,200. This is a home for physically disabled
adults that we have supported for a number of years now, it
'adopted' charity together with the Trafford Branch of MS as
we collected for in 2012.
the 25th November 2014 we paid them a visit to make a presentation of
the collected funds. There are a few pictures of the event in the
relevant Gallery page.
As well as Warburton
we also covered a large portion of the surrounding area such as
Urmston, Lymm, Altrincham and Hale. All the locations are on the Itinerary
page and a few pictures are available in the Gallery (link above).
year we were plagued by an outbreak of flu amongst the gang that
at one point was looking like jeopardising us being able to go
out. This year apart form the usual cold in the weeks running up to the
start we were thankfully clear of worse ailments after the majority of
the Gang members had flu jabs!
