“Women of St Marie’s” Event – We Need Your Submissions

carol-4Sunday 9th September
2:00pm – 4:00pm
St Marie’s, Lugsdale Road, Widnes WA8 6DB

Former parishioners and residents will gather in the picturesque, historic setting of St Marie’s to reminisce about the hugely important role played by women in the community.

Would you like to pay tribute to your Mum, your sister or your friend? Was there a female teacher at St Marie’s who made a real impression on you? Who do you want us to remember?

Throughout the summer, local people will be encouraged to submit written stories & anecdotes which pay tribute to the Women of St Marie’s and we’ll be displaying the submissions at our event.

We’ve arranged a series of drop-in sessions (at St Marie’s) where you can bring in your photos, artefacts and stories. Members of the St Marie’s Heritage Group will be available to scan pictures, take photos of artefacts and help write down your memories.

They will be available on the following dates:
Monday 6th August (10am till midday)
Monday 13th August (10am till midday)
Monday 20th August (10am till midday)

If you’re unable to attend one of the drop-in sessions, we’d still love to hear from you. Please e-mail your photos and stories to Peter Finney (St Marie’s Heritage Group) via petervfinney@tiscali.co.uk (no more than 500 words per person please). The deadline for submissions is 5pm on Monday 20th August.

All of the stories, memories and photographs we receive will be compiled into a booklet and discussed at our event on Sunday 9th September. As always with St Marie’s Heritage Group events, there’ll be free refreshments and the chance to meet up with old friends.

Places are limited and must be reserved in advance. Contact Cole Toward on ctoward@haltonsthelensvca.org.uk or (01928) 592 405.
