    Tickets have already been selling well and will also be on sale at the Norley Garden Show on 5th September at the Tigers Head 2pm – 4pm. There have been articles in the Northwich Guardian and Chester Chronicle this week so I suspect tickets will go quite quickly from now on.

    I went to to see the first rehearsal and I must say I cried till I laughed, I am so looking forward to the performance as well as hearing Lynn Pegler’s poem “Voices of the Norley fallen” specially written for the memorial walk, recited publicly for the very first time. Its both beautiful and moving
