A COMMUNITY group has pledged to help clubs and volunteer organisations in Winsford to showcase their work.

Winsford Festivals is hosting an event called New Beginnings to give various organisations a platform to grow and flourish.

Volunteers and businesses are invited to Verdin Exchange for a two day exhibition from 10am to 6pm on Saturday, April 13 and Sunday, April 14.

Winsford mum-of-four Jay McGough, vice chairman of Winsford Festivals, said: "Our group was established more than 20 years ago. We now have a new committee and our aim is to raise money through events to put back into the community.

"With New Beginnings we want to show the community all the clubs and groups that are on offer."

Groups will be able to apply for grants for projects.

Beatbox parties will be raising money on the day for mental health.

"We are really enthusiastic about this," said Jay. "We are proud of where we are from and want to put pride back into the town.

"From the research we've done there has never been an event like this before so it seems fitting to tie it in with Easter and call it New Beginnings. We want to show people what talent we have in the town.

"We both volunteer and help Winsford Town Council with their events."

Group chairman Winsford mum Emma Brown wants to encourage as many groups and businesses as possible to take part.

Various scouts and guiding units have already signed up along with Cheshire Police and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Emma said:"We are still looking for groups or people to take part. We also have a small number of stalls left."
