Mellor S. Mary’s Church and Primary School Rose Gala – Saturday, 9th June 2018

posted 13 May 2018, 21:49 by Richard Jones

This year, 2018, sees the merger of two important events in the village of Mellor – The Rose Queen Festival and the School Gala Day.

 Members of St Mary’s Church and FOSMs are working together to ensure that the best of both events are combined so that the day is memorable for all, especially the children.

 The Rose Queen, Emilia Dunn will be crowned at a service in church at 11.00am by her aunt, Alison Ryan, before taking part in a Procession of Witness around the village, with her attendants, Matilda Dunn, Georgia Wells, Georgina and Holly Batty. The Retiring Queen, Alannah Slater with her attendants Jessica Wells, Charlotte Dawson-Smith and Lara Book; and the visiting Rose Queens from Salesbury and Langho will also be present.

 At the moment we are still trying to find a band to lead the procession and everyone is invited to join in by walking with the Church Banners which will be carried by parents and children from church and school.

On arrival back at school Emilia will carry out her first duty as Rose Queen by opening the Gala.

Entrance will be by donations (buckets will be shaken).

There will be the usual stalls and attractions in and around the school with refreshments and the Barbeque.

Everyone is invited to take part and enjoy this very special day for all members of Church & School in Mellor.

Time to say goodbye

Reverend Doctor John Darch

 

 On Palm Sunday a large congregation attended John's final service at St Mary's before he and his wife, Madge, retire to live in Shropshire.

John has been a regular visitor to Mellor for several years, taking services and being part of the ministry team in the United Benefice. His sermon focused on the many journeys mentioned in the Bible and reminded us of our own journey of faith.

Graham Tipper spoke for us all when he thanked John for his ministry to us, giving him cards of good wishes from many parishioners and Mrs Darch was presented with a bouquet of yellow roses.

Canon John Hartley and

Reverend Roland Nicholson 

 Easter Sunday marked the last time that Canon John would celebrate Holy Communion in St Mary's Church.

At the request of the Bishop of Blackburn, the Right Reverend Julian Henderson, John and Roland have been asked to step down from officiating at services in the United Benefice, serving on any committees, attending events and having any involvement in school or attending meetings of the Mothers Union etc.

For the past ten years both John and Roland have served the United Benefice faithfully as priests, always available and ready to help in times of need...or joy.

As a mark of our appreciation, they were both given cards signed by many members of the congregation, gifts of wine and vouchers and received a standing ovation from the large congregation.

 

 The statement from the bishop is available for anyone to read and can be found on the notice board in the Narthex of St Mary's church
