The staff of Halton & St Helens VCA were delighted to welcome The Myler family back into St Marie’s, which was their Church when they were growing up in Widnes in the 1930’s and 40’s.
On the left is Margaret Gosselin (Myler). Then it’s Joan Kershaw (Myler) who remembers being a Hand Maiden (always an important role) to the May Queen in 1939. Next to Joan is Nora Cohen (Myler) who recalls enthusiastically clapping at the end of one particularly inspiring sermon. Sadly, no one other members of the congregation joined in. Finally, on the right is Mary Kirkby (Myler). Mary fondly remembers spending her pocket money on holy books for children which were available at the back of the church.
Some of the family had traveled from the beautiful city of Boston in America. We hope they enjoyed their visit!
