Miss Marjorie Howarth spent the remaining years of her life as a resident of the Sunny Bank Care Home on Sunny Bower Street in Tottington. In her will she left a legacy that has enabled St Anne’s to complete the reroofing, internal redecoration and re-plastering of the area known as Room2. In addition we have been able to install railings to make safe the memorial garden at the front of the Church.
The PCC resolved only last week to rename Room 2 the Marjorie Howarth Room in recognition of her kindness and her remarkable life story.
The ongoing running costs of this Church never decrease. Maintaining the fabric of our buildings and grounds to the Glory of God (and this is why we do it) is an unenviable responsibility for the PCC and especially Roger Morley our Church Treasurer.
Since its very foundation in 1799 we have always depended on legacies to support and resource the life of St Anne’s . If you would like to do this please contact Roger Morley or the Vicar.
