Diocese of Shrewsbury Education Service

They currently have vacancies for Foundation Governors within the Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority area. If you would be interested in this role please go to the diocesan website (Diocese of Shrewsbury), where if you click on the main heading ‘Education’ drop downs will appear on the left hand side, you should click on ‘Governors’ and then ‘Governor Vacancies’.  You will find the paperwork to be completed which also includes information about the role of a Foundation Governor. Or you can email this address – –  where they can issue the necessary paperwork either via email or by post. There are instructions in the porch for navigating to the website.

Coffee morning

Our Coffee Morning last Tuesday raised a total of £134. Thanks to all who helped to organise it and to those who came along to make the event such a success. Our next Coffee Morning will be on Tuesday 15th May at 10am – come along and join in the fun –  Refreshments, Bingo, Raffle and Bring-and Buy Sale.


A very successful Bingo Night raised a record breaking £1,236 to be shared equally between Cheshire Autism Practical Support and Cheshire West Carer Support. Both charities well represented by friends and families and a great turnout by parishioners. A huge amount of organisation goes in to setting this up and running it so smoothly on the night, but the Bingo GIrls (and boy- Joe Davis! The Bingo Caller) have it all down to a T! Many thanks to all concerned.


Winner: £40 Prize this week – Mr George Chilton
