Vicars have a day off too !

Veronica's day off is a Monday. The Church Wardens  kindly request that we respect this and avoid disturbing or phoning her on a  Monday unless it is an emergency. It is difficult for to her to get time off with living where she works. If we are mindful of Monday's,  Veronica will get her time off, she will then be rested and always ready for our needs for the rest of the week.

  Many thanks for your consideration.

Marbury WI wins Royal Cheshire Show Prize !

 

Chesh. County Show exhibit - june 2016Marbury WI’s Craft Group were absolutely delighted to win 3 rd prize for their exhibit in the “Holiday Time” Combined Co-operative Class at the Royal Cheshire County Show at Tatton Park in June. Members from many of the 207 WI groups in Cheshire demonstrated an incredible range of skills in the WI marquee with a total of 660 exhibits in 10 competitive classes. President Yvette Openshaw said “It was the first time Marbury WI have entered so it was very much a trial run for us. We were thrilled to discover that we’d come third out of 16 entries in our class, and were only 3 points off the winning score!” The theme was “A postcard from ….” – and Marbury took inspiration from the seaside, with Yvette Openshaw’s crafted beach-bag, a rag doll made by Carol Love, and star-fish shaped shortbread biscuits from Beryl Fletcher who also painted the “sea and sky” backdrop.

 

Carol’s doll was one of only four items from among all the entries in the class to be awarded full marks by the judges!

Higher Wych School Charity

The charity supports the educational needs of young people in the township of Iscoyd (essentially Whitewell Parish). In recent months, young people have received financial help with music lessons on piano, flute, and cornet. The Trust has awarded grants to students travelling abroad to further their education. It has provided assistance to students taking up further education at University. It has paid towards additional coaching for students at school and it has even helped someone obtain their HGV licence. If you are a young person who is either living in the Whitewell Parish, or who has a strong connection to it, you too may be eligible for help. In the first instance you should approach Mr Philip Godsal, the Chairman of the Trustees.
