    On December 7th we were due to have Helen Read, come and give us a demonstration entitled “Crackers are not just for Christmas”!  Due to the

    snow we had to cancel this but we will be having Helen come and speak to us later in the year.




    The next meeting of the WL will be at 2.30 pm on TUESDAY 1ST FEBRUARY.

    This will be a business meeting as we need to complete outstanding items which, due to lack of time, could not be discussed at the AGM.


    March 8th at 7.30 pm will be an open meeting when Fiona Bunting will be speaking to us.  Fiona is a theatrical costumier and from what I have heard it is not to be missed.  Please make every effort to support this event – everyone invited.

    Ann Parker will be repeating her slide show of photographs of Chapel members past and present.  When Ann did a presentation last year it proved to be a very enjoyable evening.  The date will appear in a future calendar.  That will also be an open meeting.

    Madge Harwood will reach the grand young age of 90 on February 26th..   Madge  has very kindly invited members of the congregation to stay and  join her for “nibbles and bubbles” after Chapel Service  on Sunday the 27th.   Congratulations, Madge, on your special birthday.

  • December 2010

    For our November WL meeting, we were invited to visit Sue Sarker’s new home, where she made us very welcome. She showed us round her lovely new bungalow, and provided us with a ‘taste of India’ for supper, as a celebration of Diwali

    Unfortunately, due to illness and other commitments, only five members were able to join us, which was disappointing as Sue had prepared food for many more visitors.

    Many thanks to Sue for her kindness in entertaining us. Those of us who were there had a lovely evening.

    A few of us went to the Bury Chapel Bazaar and Coffee morning on 6th November and exchanged greetings from Bank Street Bolton to Bank Street Bury. We had a lovely time and were made very welcome. Unfortunatelywe were unable to accept their very kind invitation to their November meeting but we will rearrange something in the New Year.

    Our December WL meeting is on Tuesday 7th December at 7.30 pm. Jennifer Whitelaw has kindly organised for a guest to demonstrate that “Crackers are not just for Christmas”. The invitation is to open everyone so please bring your family and friends. There will be festive refreshments. Please do support this evening.

    Our best wishes go to Janet Poole, our President, who had a most unfortunate accident recently and was in hospital having broken her arm quite severely.

    Janet is now home and we all wish her a speedy recovery. By the time Janetreads this calendar she will, we hope, have enjoyed a wonderful cruise with her husband Bill.

    Details of the January meeting will be announced on the notice board and in Chapel.
