From the archive

This archive photo of the Mothers’ Union was taken in our church garden, though we’re not sure exactly when.

We had identified Jenny Marsden and Dorothy Butterworth on the back row on the right hand side. David Howard has since been in contact to say the lady kneeling at the front on the left hand side is June Kelly and next to her in the dark glasses is Betty Beattie. Annie Chadwick is to the right of the banner at the back. Peggy Treanor is third from the right, next to Dorothy Butterworth. Florence Bostock is fourth from the left.

If you can identify anyone else or if you know when the photo was taken then please let us know!

Franciscan Mission

The photo below was taken in the early 1980’s during a mission led by Franciscan’s during the time of the Reverend Huw Thomas. The picture is a bit blurry but Huw is on the far right hand side, black top and beard, near the front. And it looks like we had quite a few young people in the choir at the time…

We’ve spotted Mary and Edwin Farnworth on the second row on the left hand side. If you can identify anyone else please let us know.

  1. David Howard has been in touch since we first put this post up and we now have some more names for the Mothers Union which we’ve added. If you can help us with anyone else then please get in contact.
