Women of Church Minshull
Amelia Massey Brereton
Written by Dr Joanne Smith
Church Minshull has a vibrant and dynamic community, with many activities being effectively organised by local women who dedicate much time and effort to improving the lives of parishioners. But has this always been the case? What contribution did women make to the village throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries?
In a series of forthcoming mini biographical portraits, the contributions of three key women, one a local postmistress, Miss Amelia Massey Brereton and two teachers, Miss Upsom and Miss Potts, will reveal the contributions these women made to Church Minshull. These brief pieces will demonstrate that women's engagement in their local communities has a long and varied history.
Village Arena would like to thank the family of Miss Amelia Brereton for getting in touch with us and sending this super new photograph
