A CONCERT by the Houghton Weavers has been hailed a huge success.

The much loved folk group entertained a full house at St John's Parish Church in Knutsford with their special brand of music and comedy.

The charity concert enabled Knutsford Lions to achieve their share of a £10,000 appeal by a local Pride of Lions for The Christie at Macclesfield.

Paul Buttrick, president of Knutsford Lions, said: "It was a wonderfully entertaining evening in this beautiful church.

"We are thankful to everyone, including Stewart Gardner our town mayor and his consort, who came along and especially to the Houghton Weavers who put on a fabulous show.

"After the lockdowns, the opportunity to see a live performance made an almost joyful atmosphere at times."
