Nostalgia: Check out these winning hats in Mossley

You could write a sonnet about these Easter bonnets on show in the Darby and Joan club parade at Mossley's George Lawton Hall, back in 1993.

They belonged to winner Susie Lowe, left, and runner-up Daisy Bishop who each received a large chocolate Easter egg. The bonnets were judged by Cllr Honorine Graham, well known for her own collection of hats.

• Pupils at Milton St John’s Primary School, Mossley, found a way to have fun and give the NSPCC an egg-stra boost. They decorated hard-boiled eggs for Easter and got family and friends to sponsor them in an environmental challenge, raising £500 to help fund the Stockport and Tameside Child Protection Unit.

• Audiences had their passports at the ready as Mossley School of Dance took them on a spectacular round-the-world trip. The show staged over three nights at the George Lawton Hall raised over £1,500 for the NSPCC and the Malcolm Sargent Cancer Fund for Children. All age groups from pre-primary to seniors appeared in a series of routines featuring tiny policemen with bended knees and batons, an Egyptian feast and a crowd-pleasing Can-Can.
