REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY.

We shared with the children from School in their commemoration on Armistice Day at 10.30am in church & layed our wreaths to remember those who died in both wars.

On Sunday we joined St James Milnrow at their 9.00am Sunday Service.

This enabled Ivan to lead the Act of Rembrance at the War Memorial in the Park.

The 3rd of July was a very special day in St Thomas's calender, our 140th birthday.

Our friends from St James' joined in in the celebration.

After the service we enjoyed sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs with plenty of tea and coffee to wash them down.

The weather was kind to us so the children had games in the churchyard and "Olly's Disco" provided music & party games.

A fantastic cake was provided with a Happy bBrthday message to St Thomas's. 

Agreat day which everyone enjoyed. Many thanks to all the organisers.
