The big event this month is the Rose Queen Fete and Fell Run on the 15th June with the Rose Queen Service on the 16th in church. A fortnight later a weekend of open gardens, see below for details. (see the poster and flyer).


Bethany Davies, the Rose Queen, says, “My name is Bethany but my friends call me Beth. I am so lucky to have been chosen to be Bosley’s 2019 Rose Queen. I feel honoured and utterly thrilled and what makes it even more exciting is that my two best friends, Jessica and Evie are my attendants! Also the Rose King is my friend Max Clampett. He is a wonderful artist and especially good at drawing cows which you would expect if you know him as he loves animals, mostly cows!


I love to dance and go to Shaftsbury dance studio where I learn Latin, Ballroom and Rock ‘n’ Roll. I love playing the guitar and adore reading and my favourite thing of all is animals. I have a beautiful dog called Bertie who is very loving he is a ridgeback, very excitable and I have a little fluff ball of a cat, Cassie, and I love looking after them. I have a super big brother, William, who is 13 and goes to King’s, great at Lego and maths, funny and good to have around. I love school and lucky to have a fantastic group of friends and great teachers. I enjoy spellings with Mrs. Hadfield and folk dancing with Mrs Smith.”


Those taking part in the procession include retiring queens and kings, Hollie Brut, Millie Booth Jack Worrall and Rhys Williams and their attendants; the new Rose Queen and King, Bethany Davies and Max Clampett, ladies in waiting Jessica Rawlinson and Evie Booth and Men at Arms Leo Clampett, Finn Ogden and Joseph Lee; young attendants; the crown bearer, Ted Needham; Sword Bearers, Evan Lovatt and Joshua Bowyer; Trumpeter, Henry Corbiere and Oscar Peacock; Drummers, Daniel Lovatt and Isaac Calveley; Banners, Matthew Needham, Fraser Peacock and Robin Calveley and Flower Girls.


The Annual Meeting of the church was held on 25th April. Reports were given by the vicar, treasurer, secretary, churchwarden, youth group, tower, health and safety, electoral roll and the church improvement officers. These can be seen on the notice board in church. There was no change in those holding office.


Congratulations to Suzanne for completing the London Marathon in 4 hours 51 minutes and raising money for ‘Heads Together’.


A funeral service for Harry Twigg was held at Bosley chapel on 3rd May. Harry and his late wife, Evelyn, had been consistent worshippers at the chapel during their later years. As they became more elderly they moved from their Macclesfield home to be cared for at The Mount, Bollington. Their son, Michael, and grandson each in turn gave a true and honest account of the hard working man they loved and respected.

A website for the church (www.bosleychurch.org.uk) is being set up. It will have information and history about the church, school and village, church services, forthcoming events and more. We now have details of those killed in WWI, where born, regiments, where buried etc. This is the sort of thing we hope to include as well as details of all buried in the churchyard and position of graves.


On Saturday and Sunday, the 29th and 30th June 2019, visitors will be heading to the pretty village of Bosley for their Open Gardens event. This will be the third time the village has held this popular attraction with 9 gardens, of varying designs & sizes. They will all be endeavouring to be in tip-top order for the weekend, each with its own individual interest and character. Gardens will be open from 1pm to 5pm each day.


There will be something for everybody, from gardeners young and old, new and experienced. Quality home-made refreshments will be served at several locations around the tour and plant stalls brimming with plants to enhance your own garden will be available at some gardens.


Entry to all gardens for the entire weekend is £5 per person, accompanied children will be free. A map to all the gardens will be available with the tickets, which can be purchased from either St. Mary’s Church (SK11 0NX),

Woodcroft (SK11 0PB) or Eastview (CW12 3QG).


Proceeds are in aid of the Church Improvements Project at St. Mary’s which is to provide modern facilities and improvements to enable the building to be used as a Community Hall for the village.

Lent starts on Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the forty days before Easter. This year it falls on March 6th and the Lent lunch will be at Wincle vicarage. The next week, March 13th it will be at Blaze Farm and on March 20th at Sutton church hall. There is a gap of a week and then the Bosley Lent lunch is on 3rd April at Hawkslee, the Wain’s up on Bosley Minn, and on the 10th April at Bosley Chapel. All these are for Christian Aid.


The Macclesfield Male Voice Choir are giving a concert on March 16th at 7.30pm at St. Mary’s Church. This is a much admired choir and will be an enjoyable evening. Tickets are £8 which includes refreshments, and can be obtained from church members, on the door or phone 01260 226542.


The Plough Service was held this year at St. Mary’s church with many farmers present and a good congregation for the blessing of the plough, and a new born lamb (see the photo) was brought up by the children to be blessed and the choir sang two anthems. We sang ‘Happy Birthday’ for Ava who was eleven that day.


The Electoral Roll is revised every six years and people have to renew their membership by filling in the required form. These are available in church or phone 01260 226131.


On the 31st March, Mothering Sunday, the service will be up at Wincle at 10.30. This will be Kim’s last service as she, Corniel, Ava and Amara leave for St. Albans where she has gained a prestigious post at the cathedral working with the youth. Many congratulations to her as we say our goodbyes to someone who has brought a breath of fresh air to us at Bosley with lots of fun and laughter as well as bringing a serious message in the services; we will sadly miss her and the family. Corniel has made a big contribution to the Peak Parishes with his editing the magazine and he now starts his study to be ordained. Good luck to all of them as they start their new life and new schools and hope they may visit sometime.


Church Improvement Project

Thanks to all those who continue to support us in our fund-raising efforts to improve and revitalise the church building; so that it may become a shared Community Hall for both community activities and for worship, whilst meeting the needs of the 21st century. Outline plans are available to view in the church at any time.

We have so far raised over £112,000 from pledges, donations & grants, but there is still a lot more required to reach our target of £215,000. Our aim is to start the build project this summer if funding is in place. Further grant funding applications have recently been submitted and we await their outcomes over the next few months.

Meanwhile we continue to seek your support of donations and attendance at forthcoming fund-raisers. We are currently organising a Race Night for the Spring and Open Gardens weekend in the Summer. Other activities suggested include a Casino night and a “Buy–a–Brick” campaign – so watch out for these developments!

If you would like to donate to the fund to build our Community Hall, donations can be handed to any church member,

or by cheque to “St. Mary’s Church”, Bosley, SK11 0NX,

or sent direct to the bank –
