Churchyard Reordering

Having gone through and satisfied all of the necessary legal requirements the Parochial Church Council has obtained permission from the Diocesan Chancellor to relocate a number of gravestones that are currently located in the Memorial Garden at the front of the Church.

For many years they have posed a real hazard in respect of personal safety; this is particularly so in the winter. The work of relocation will be undertaken with meticulous care by J Rawson and Son using specialist equipment and the stones will be sunk upright in front of the wall that separates the Parish Hall from the Churchyard with the inscriptions visible.

During the removal of the stones the Vicar intends to be on site. Added soil will then be placed on the memorial garden and this will be seeded.

If anyone has any questions or concerns please do hesitate to contact the Vicar.

In Memoriam of Gordon Foote

The bench and engraved stone placed in Holymount Orchard in memory of Gordon Foote was dedicated by the Vicar of Tottington, the Reverend Hugh Bearn on Saturday 17th November at 12o’clock at the Orchard. Following this there was a walk on the West Pennine Way to the Pack Horse at Affetside for lunch.

Everyone is welcome

Do come and join us at our Sunday meeting at 10.15am, and pop in afterwards for a cuppa and a chat in the parish hall.

Prayer

O God our maker, whose Son Jesus Christ gave to your servant Bede grace to drink in with joy the word that leads us to know you and love you: in your goodness grant that we also may come at length to you, the source of all wisdom, and stand before your face; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
