Bosley Notes from the Parish Magazine
The snowdrops are in flower and the daffodils pushing up their leaves and even some primroses are in bud, maybe winter is nearly over as Lent begins and end with the climax of Easter.
Plough Sunday brought all the farmers into church for the blessing of the plough and new born lamb. The lamb wasn’t exactly new born but a lovely little black lamb about five weeks old. Too heavy for the children to carry but James Gilman brought her up with the children alongside. Mothering Sunday is on March 15th with posies given to the ladies and then Palm Sunday when we hope to have the donkeys and process from the village green to the church.
Revd. Dr. John Harries will be installed as our vicar on 11th May at 7.30pm at Sutton St. James Church. No Lent course this year but discussions are starting during the month with John Harries to consider how he would like to manage services and other issues.
The houses at the Boar’s Leigh site are going up fast and should bring more people to the village to participate in our various events, swell school and Bobkins numbers, church and youth club.
Lent lunches this month are on 4th at Wincle, 8th Sutton, 11th Blaze Farm, 18th at North Rode and 25th at Chapel all in aid of Christian Aid.
Macclesfield Male Voice Choir are giving a concert in church on July 11th which should be an event well worth coming to. Rachel’s Quiz is on 10th March in Chapel.
