Visiting Apperknowle's well dressing

Along with dozens of local residents, Lee Rowley attended the official opening of the Apperknowle Well Dressing today at Apperknowle Methodist Church.  

Derbyshire's villages are renowned for their well dressings each Summer and Apperknowle started to take part a few years ago.  This year, the well dressing celebrated the important work of the RNLI and the well dressing has been outside the Methodist Church for the last few days.

"It's lovely to be able to be part of such important village occasions," said Lee.  "What a fantastic well dressing!  Congratulations to everyone who has been involved in keeping this tradition alive in the village."
