Childrens Fete at Whittington

I have heard from different sources how kind and charitable the Swanwick family were to local children, opening up their gardens for summer parties and events. One such event was recorded in the Derbyshire Courier 17 July 1847. It sounds a splendid occasion and I can imagine that the local children had a thoroughly enjoyable day.
