Following the delightful service of Sung Evensong in May, at which the singing was provided by the wonderful Vox Vocavit, the choir has kindly agreed to sing Matins at Whitewell on 22nd October at the revised time of 11:30. Later that day they are then going over to Marbury where they will be singing evensong, again at a revised time of 4:30pm. The sung Matins at Whitewell will be followed by lunch in The Parish Rooms. The menu will be Coronation Chicken or Salmon, a pud, a glass of wine and a coffee, all for the price of £12. Lunch will be by TICKET ONLY which will be available from Carolyn Wort.
To the community on behalf of St. Michael’s Church.
It seems that thieves have stolen lead recently from St.Oswald’s, Malpas and St. Chad’s, Farndon – so we need to be vigilant! especially as we have now provided them with scaffolding to get up to the roof!!!!!
We need to be aware of any strangers we see around the village or vehicles etc.

President Beryl Fletcher welcomed members and guests to the July meeting, reporting that the Marbury WI’s 90th Birthday Afternoon Tea had been very successful, and that our Craft Group’s entry to the Royal Cheshire Show had been awarded “Commended” in a category with over 25 entries from across the county. The Bridge Beginners Group will meet for the first time in July, and the outing to Llandudno on the 17th August will replace our regular meeting.
Beryl then welcomed our speaker – Stephen Shakeshaft – who introduced us to “Chester Uncovered”. Stephen is one of 30 registered Chester Tour Guides and took us on an illustrated “virtual tour” of the unknown parts of Chester and the stories behind them. Among the many fascinating things which Stephen introduced us to was the Sedan Porch in Stanley Place – the only one in the north of the UK! – and the fact that the Cathedral Bell Tower was the first free-standing bell tower to be built in Europe since the middle ages. Chester’s half-exposed Roman amphitheatre was the largest in Britain, holding 7,000 spectators, and in medieval times Chester was one of only five ports in the whole of Britain allowed to import wine. With our heads reeling with facts, figures and photos, Sheila Steele gave the vote of thanks for an enthralling talk which had entertained and educated us! The competition was won by Margaret Barnet and the raffle by Carol Sheard.
The next meeting at the village hall will be on 12th September – for details contact Beryl Fletcher (01948 664889).
The Wedding Field, Marbury.
I know this is a contentious issue and emotions are running high with regards to the use of the field. But it has been reported to me that Criminal Damage has been occurring to property belonging to the owner of the field. The owner is extremely concerned that damage is going to be caused to property that does not belong to them situated on the field.
This is a criminal offence for which the offending person/s will get a criminal record for if the owners feel they need to pursue the matter.
I am asking that if anyone has an issue with the use of the field then they should report it through the proper channels and not to take matters into their own hands, no matter how passionate they feel about the situation.
If anybody knows who is responsible then please let me know or if you wish to discuss anything with me then you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
