OUR PILGRIMAGE – was truly blessed last Sunday; the sun shone, the roads were quiet, and we all behaved impeccably. We had the grounds of Whalley Abbey to ourselves. Alas, no one took the plunge at St Anne’s, but all found the sea air and the amenities quite splendid.
MAGIC GOES WRONG – we go to the Lowry Theatre on Thursday 8th August. Tickets are £40 including transport and can be paid for this month.
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA – will need to be taking the list away very soon.

The list is in the porch – do put ‘S’ after your name if you prefer to sit in the stalls..

GENERAL APPROVAL – for our new railings. The hedge had become unweildy and trimming it something of a labour, and, with climate change round the corner, it will deter polar bears and brown bears.
FAVOURITE HOLIDAY SPOTS – whilst Wales, Lytham ,Whitby, Cornwall, remain firm favourites, parishioners have been spreading their wings this year: Mexico, Vietnam, Canada, Australia, South Africa, not to mention, Monte Carlo, Seville, Mallorca, Portugal et al!
WISDOM FROM THE PEWS – The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending; and to have the two as close together as possible.
DON’T FORGET – Keep on keeping on!
