Our fantastic family fun event, the Willow Wood Bubble Rush, is coming up this Sunday 8 July, but be quick if you want to register for the online discount – this will close at precisely 12 noon, Friday, 6 July.

You will still be able to sign up on the day at £20 for adults and £8 for children (under two years go free!) if you’d like to join the fun.  Chris Hayden, event organiser said: ‘We’ll be opening registrations on the day from 10am onwards, so get yourself round to Blocksages Field, Birch Lane, Dukinfield and you can still be part of the 2018 Bubble Rush.  It’s going to be amazing, as we’ve doubled the numbers who took part last year.  We’re also making it more of a family fun day with fairground rides, merchandise stalls, refreshments and more.”

However, as Chris pointed out, “Your registration fee covers the cost of actually putting the event on, and includes a special Bubble Rush T shirt and medal, so if you can raise some sponsorship to help us continue to care for our community we’d be very grateful.  Having said that, we know raising funds can be difficult so we’ve got some special fundraising cards.  They’re like the traditional football cards – and the great thing is that once they’ve been completed the winner gets a prize of £20 and Willow Wood gets £100!  Please pick one up when you sign in, we’ve got quite a few to choose from.”

If you’d like to join us for the Bubble Rush and take advantage of the online discount please go to and just follow the link on the home page.  You’ll be able to register yourself and your family quickly, easily and securely.
