BLOWING IN THE WIND -hope nobody got blown away on Friday; it was certainly a lively night and morning. The weather over Christmas was very agreeable and the services in church joyous. This Sunday is the Feast of the Holy Family, so more carols will be on the menu. The windy weather has tended to keep people indoors though I’m sure that we have all noticed the tiniest stretch in the days- staying light till almost 4.30pm!
A STALYBRIDGE PUB – a parishioner has drawn our attention to the pub with the longest name in Britan – and on our doorstep! ‘The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn’ It is said to be a decent watering hole – perhaps some parishioners partake of a glass or two there.
