REVIVING A MID-CHESHIRE EASTER TRADITION
Leo's first Good Friday ball.
As our salt town days recede further and further into history it's interesting to hear of a tradition which seems to be unique to Winsford and Middlewich and was brought to our attention by Margaret Poniznik who wrote a post on Facebook asking if everyone had bought their Good Friday balls ready for Easter.
The whole idea seemed to be news to a lot of people, including me, but Margaret pointed out that the custom had been mentioned in a short Middlewich Guardian article.
