Farewell evening for retiring Vicar Sidney and his wife Sue.
On Friday evening 8th February over 200 parishioners gathered in the Parish Hall on Broadway to give our vicar Sidney and his wife Sue, a good “Lancashire send off’. The tables groaned with food for the Jacob’s Join but some people had to ‘sing for their supper’. The entertainment began with one of our ‘older’ members entertaining us on numerous types of harmonica and then followed performers old and young from all three Worship Centres, playing instruments, singing, comedy turns and reciting poems. Such talent!
Following the presentation of gifts to Sidney and Sue in thanks for all they have done for the Parish over the past almost eight years, we all enjoyed a delicious supper before the entertainment continued, concluding with a sing-song of old Yorkshire songs. A wonderful Parish social had been enjoyed by all. We wish Sidney and Sue a long and very happy retirement back home in Yorkshire.
