A Special Farewell

On the evening of Sunday 18th June we had a very special service to say goodbye to our friends Margaret and David Andrew who have moved to Cheshire to be closer to their family. David and Margaet have been members of our church for nearly fifty years and have contributed an enormous amount to our church life. David has served as an ordained local minister for many years and before that he was a Lay Reader. Amongst other things he has also been our choirmaster and worked tirelessly to restore our churchyard. Margaret has been our PCC Secretary for many years and has also been involved in our Mothers Union, served as a Foundation Governor at Birkenshaw School and played the piano for our services at St Paul's and St Luke's.

After the service we all enjoyed a hearty supper and there was even a special cake to mark the occassion.. We wish Margaret and David every happiness in their new home.
