The volunteers of St Marie’s Heritage Group were delighted to welcome over 70 visitors to St Marie’s on Saturday 5th November for the launch of our new St Marie’s Timeline. The 9 banners located around the church documenting the story of the parish and the people and clergy who worshipped and served there from 1861 to 2013 looked magnificent.
The banners certainly sparked a lot of conversation and no doubt brought back lots of memories of times spent with family and friends in the church. There were a number of people and organisations to thank and they included Tesco Community Grants, Halton Area Forum (Halton Borough Council) and John Norris of MacPro Design for the production.
A 43 page booklet was also made available, St Marie’s Church History Timeline; The story of a parish and its people, and we’d like to thank all those who took a copy and left a donation. The Timeline banners are a permanent feature in the church and are able to be viewed Monday to Friday 9.30am to 4.00pm. Copies of the booklet are also available for a donation.
