We are still missing meeting with our Church Family, and are sad to say that over the last two months or so we have lost four of them; Joan Owen, Jean Harrison, Dorothy Millard and Mavis Sykes.
It is with sadness that we were unable to properly say our goodbyes to these ladies in our usual way and give some comfort to friends and family as we would normally do.
The funeral of Mavis Sykes was held in Crompton Cemetery on Friday 5th June and several of us were able to attend as there was space to keep well apart. Mavis was an important member of our Church and had been involved in various capacities over most of her life. Most recently she was Church Secretary and brought her enthusiasm to this as she did to all her other activities. For the last few years she had been resident in Shawside Nursing Home and unfortunately became a victim of the Covid-19 virus.
Howard arranged for the funeral service to be filmed. If you wish to see the video please contact any of the church elders or Hedley Jackson who will provide you with the weblink.
It is difficult to see how we will be able to get back to our lives as we knew it, but until then,
Keep Safe, and God Bless.
