As you may be aware, in previous years Church Minshull Women's Institute has laid a wreath at the Remembrance Service at St. Bartholomew's
Following the closure of the local W.I. it has been suggested that the Ladies of the Parish may wish to lay a wreath, not only to remember the Fallen, but also to commemorate the work done by women during the two World Wars and other conflicts.
To this end, we are asking for a donation of £1 from each lady towards the cost of the wreath, with any excess funds being given to the Church.
If you would like to make a donation please put £1 in an envelope(with your name on) and leave in the Village Hall postbox. Alternatively, you can give the money directly to Jeanne Stockdale who is co-ordinating.
