Glossop town centre packed to celebrate double anniversary

Glossop’s Norfolk Square was packed with party-goers on Saturday and everyone was celebrating.

Mummy’s Star, the only charity in the UK and Ireland dedicated to women and their families affected by cancer during pregnancy, was celebrating its third anniversary.

While across the square on Henry Street, Sandra’s Florist was marking its 25th anniversary.

Both parties merged into one, with party people walking under an arch of blue and white Mummy’s Star balloons for hours of fun.

Stardust Dancers rocked and rolled the afternoon away to the sounds of the 50s and youngsters joined a drumming workshop to added a few sounds of their own.

At the end of the day, when it was time to go home, giant bubbles floated into the sky.

The various stalls together raised around £1,000 for Mummy’s Star.

But raising cash wasn’t the main aim, it was a chance to celebrate a Glossop charity which has done so much for so many people.

For Sandra Ballington, who owns Sandra’s Florists, it was a time to invite friends and customers in for a drink and a birthday bun!

Whatever party people chose, and most went to both, it was a great way to spend a sunny afternoon.
