Many thanks to all who helped make our St George's Day fundraising quiz for Help for Heroes such a great success. Special thanks to Vicky and Liz (aka Sue!) for creating such an entertaining and original quiz and to Mike R for his wonderful Manchester Eggs and the rest of the buffet. Thanks also to Mike B for donating his framed pump clips and Lorraine for donating ear rings, both for the raffle. As soon as all the money has been counted we will let you know the total raised.
Our next jolly is on Sunday May 18th to the East Lancs Railway. As well as steam trains and diesel locos running from Heywood to Rawstenstall there are some cracking real ale pubs on stations or within a couple of minutes walk of stations. There is also the Irwell Works Brewery tap at Ramsbottom and the Phoenix Brewery at Heywood, not to mention the Trackside Bar at Bury station and the Buffer Stop at Rawtenstall station. Cost is £10pp and the coach leaves The Snug at 10-30am due back around 7-30pm.
Now then, parish notices over here's what's on as we start the weekend:
