From the churchwardens and church council:


We are dedicating our Christmas Tree this year to the memory of our much-loved friend and priest, Father John.


Many thanks to Vaughan and Lester of Denton who supplied us with a fine tree which we have decorated in traditional style as Father John would have liked.


We hope and pray you will have a peaceful Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year
