MANY THANKS – to all who braved the freezing temperature and biting wind on Friday for the procession. Many parishioners mentioned that they had never known it to be so cold on a Whit Friday. We did manage to escape the showers and thank God that the everything passed off safely. Our gratitude to those who carried the banners and statues, to the stewards, and to the ladies who decorated the statues so beautifully. The Mossley Band played cheerfully and enthusiastically – though disappointed not to hear ‘ I’ll take you home again Kathleen.’!
