DThe village centre has a great choice of shops to supply the day-to-day needs of the residents. These include a supermarket, bakery, deli and butchers as well as a Post Office and bank. There are also many independent, specialist shops such as a clothes shop, home furnishings and car accessories. There is a great choice of restaurants, pubs and cafes as well as takeaways. Disley also has many service providers like hairdressers, estate agents, solicitors and financial services. Disley’s gardeners may complain about the weather yet each year they show what can be achieved with their magnificent displays at the annual Disley Horticultural Society show, which is held at the Disley Amalgamated Sports Club in August. Throughout the year, volunteer group, PRIDE, keep the village brimming with colour with their hanging basket, planter and flower bed displays. There is a fantastic range of societies and clubs catering for all tastes, as shown on the Societies and Organisations page of the guide. Every Saturday, coffee mornings are held in the Community Centre, organised by various charities, groups and societies. The Parish Council runs a Community Bus scheme offering day and half-day trips to a variety of popular venues such as Bury Market, Ashbourne and Bakewell. These trips can be run with very reasonable fares owing to the help of a great team of volunteer drivers. isley and Newtown Today Disley Well-Dressing Disley launched its inaugural well dressing in June 2011 after an area of land near St. Mary’s Church was cleared by the PRIDE (People Restoring and Improving Disley’s Environment) group to make the Woodland Memorial Garden. An ancient spring was unearthed which used to supply drinking water to the Fountain in the village centre. The well was restored and now the well-dressing festival is an annual feature on the Disley social calendar. The event, which is organised by a group of volunteers working with PRIDE, is held in June. Cycling Festival A bicycle sculpture on the Ram Green hints at Disley’s strong association with cycling. The sculpture is in commemoration of the cycling achievements of Dame Sarah Storey and Barney Storey during the 2012 London Paralympics. There are also two gold painted letter boxes in the village dedicated in their honour. Other Disley cycling champions are Hannah Walker and Sophie Thornhill. The village now hosts a biennial Cycling Festival every other September with events all around the village. Christmas Tree Lighting The highlight of the festive season is the Christmas Tree Lighting evening in early December. Fireworks, Father Christmas and musical entertainment combine with late night shopping and many other festive activities to make this a magical start to the Christmas period. 31
