It is a busy Sunday of Church Services today. Starting with St Anne’s there is the usual Communion Service – albeit in a shortened format and then there is the Annual Meeting of Parishners to elect the Churchwardens followed by the Annual General Meeting. After seven years in office I have completed my term as Churchwarden and so a new Warden will be chosen in my place.
Then, also today it is the annual commemoration of the losses sustained by the men of the town and surrounding areas who were serving in the Lancashire Fusiliers at the Battle of Gallipoli which is marked as it is every year by a special service of remembrance in the Parish Church so I will be heading down there are soon as I can.
Then, this afternoon it is back down to Bury town Centre for the annual Scouts St. George’s Day Parade and Service which will be held in the Parish Church.
Yesterday, There was no rain whilst I was out but when we had a finished a few of us paid a visit to the Greenmount Cricket Club where the first game of the season was taking place and it just so happened they were also holding a beer festivals X whilst we were watching the cricket there were hail showers!
