On the 10th of September St. Alban’s joined in the Ride and Stride movement to raise money for endangered church buildings and St. Alban’s (money shared 50:50). I went on my bicycle and explored the countryside south of Tattenhall from St. John’s, Burwardsley to St. Mary, Whitewell. A very interesting and rewarding tour that, at the end, covered 51 miles and 15 churches. 218 GBP were raised. To the left you see St. Michael's Baddiley, a hidden gem near Wrenbury. The itinerary
Thank you to all the members of our church and community for the wonderful support that you showed for our Harvest Appeal. Nearly half a tonne of foodstuffs was received through the 3 churches or by being left on the doorsteps of Father Lameck, Georgina and Dee. People were extremely generous. Thank you everybody. All donations given have been taken to the West Cheshire Foodbank, run by the Trussell Trust, and will be used to help ‘local families in crisis’.
'Community Spirit Award 2016' – the results are in and our lovely village has been awarded 'Runner Up' in this year's competition. But of particular interest to us at St Alban’s is the fact that we were awarded a 'Little Gem Award' for St Alban's Church Porch. The 'Little Gem Award' includes any area or artefact within the village which demonstrates special care and attention.
