Bosley Notes from the Parish Magazine
The service for the Induction of our new vicar, the Revd. Dr. John Harries, held on 11th May at Sutton St. James church, with The Bishop of Stockport, Libby Lane taking the service, was a great and enjoyable occasion. The church was packed with overflow in the Church Hall and excellent refreshments to follow. We all welcome John and his family to Bosley and to the new Benefice and hope they all enjoy moving to this lovely part of the country.
This month we have our Rose Queen Fete and Fell Run on 20th June, followed by the Rose Queen Service in church on the 21st. See the poster and school report on following pages for further details. Also there is a little about Sylvia Jenkinson who has always been such a major part of the event and of so many other activities that she has been involved with in Bosley over the years.
