The guides, brownies and rainbows of Hyde Chapel create a display each year by the Village Green Well SJ9593 : Village Green Well 2017. The information sheet on the right reads:

In 2018 the Trefoil Guild is celebrating its 75th anniversary. The Trefoil Guild provides opportunities to make new friend, travel, explore, serve their communities, help Guiding and have FUN!

Our picture illustrates the variety of activities Trefoil members participate in - Hands to help the community; a tent for their enjoyment of the outdoors; boots for walking; a coach for adventures and a cup of tea to relax and have a chat.
Gee Cross Well Dressing
Although well-dressing is a custom mostly confined to Derbyshire, it can be seen in adjacent counties too. Well dressing celebrations were held regularly in Gee Cross from the 1820s until 1878. The custom was revived by the local Women's Institute in 2000.
