Exams are now over and the summer days stretch ahead and we have been enjoying several weeks of sunshine, though some gardens could do with rain. I’m sure we will soon have plenty, hopefully not during our Rose Queen Fete and Fell Run which will be reported next month.


Open Gardens 2019. It is planned to have an Open Gardens weekend next June/July so get planning ahead and if you are able to open your garden, however large or small, or if you would like to help in any way, please get in touch with Jane Nixon 226542 or Dorothy Gilman 223293.


The third anniversary of the Mill Disaster is on 17th July and the Methodist Chapel will be open from 9-12 for quiet reflection. The names of those who lost their lives will be engraved on the memorial bench in the chapel graveyard. Cups of tea will be available. On Sunday, 15th the service at St. Mary’s at 9.30 will be on the theme of ‘Supporting One Another’. There will be refreshment afterwards and time to talk. (see flyer)


Congratulations to our curate, Kim Quak-Winslow, who was priested at Chester Cathedral on 2nd June with sixteen other curates from around the diocese. The cathedral was packed with supporters from all the various parishes and the service was taken by the Bishop of Chester with our Bishop of Stockport and the Bishop of Birkenhead. The Archdeacon, Ian Bishop and all the vicars of the ordinands were there, an impressive array and a wonderful service. On Sunday 3rd June Kim took the service at Sutton St. James for all four parishes of the benefice.


Martha Gilman has completed her degree in Biomedical Science at Sheffield University and has been made the Lady Chairman of Congleton Young Farmers and also she is one of the Cheshire Young Farmers Dairy Maids for the Queen. She will have a busy year ahead.


Congratulations to Jessica Wain and Cristopher le Quesne Mourant who were married at St. Mary’s Church on 19th May. The church was beautifully decorated in green and white foliage and flowers. Jessica is the daughter of Neil one of the churchwardens. (see photo)


The next meeting of the WAY group is on ‘Superstition or Faith?’ and is led by Revd. Tony Tagg at 7.30 on the 17th July in the Methodist Chapel. All welcome.


Broads Adventure

Nicola, Jenny Ratcliffe’s daughter, was one of the skippers over the Easter break with the West Runton Holiday Organisation which take youngsters on a Broads Adventure. Nicola looked after four boys between the ages of 11-14 on her boat.

Our week on the Broads was spent mostly in the mist, but with great winds, learning together about sailing but also life skills, communication skills and God. We had six Broads cruisers and a Half decker with 34 kids and 11 Skippers. The cold and mist did not put us off, we started the week with a miracle of fitting the Martham boats under Potter bridge with only 5’5foot of air space. The sailing all week was great thanks to good winds not too strong but enough to get the boats moving, we had good sails on Barton, Horsey, Malthouse and fun in the dinghies on Womack. We managed some fancy in line sailing, as well as fun tacking up rivers and mooring sf in the reeds. A walk to the beach on the Friday where we saw the length of the beach covered in seals basking in the sun. At the beach we had quiet time and prayer and thanks for the week, as well as making some excellent sand castles. Chores as always had to be done, making dinner and cleaning the boats the inspection was a close-run thing with High Seas just taking the prize. The testimonies that we received on the final squash together of how the week has brought them closer to God and stays with them for the next year, ‘a real spiritual highlight’ in their year. The good winds had meant the days were spent sailing and enjoying he beauty of the Norfolk Broads. We also had a Half decker dinghy that we all took turns sailing over the course of the week, the fun we had zipping around the broads and the opportunity for teaching sailing was great for the crew. The week spent sailing and living together brought a brilliant sense of fellowship between all the people on the cruise, skippers and crew alike.

May and June are busy months, and by the time the June magazine is out we will already have enjoyed the Male Voice Choir concert in church. The church was full for this very enjoyable concert with the new young musical director and a very talented young soloist and the programme contained a wide variety of songs. The Royal Wedding Fun Day – Harry’s Hoe Down on The Green and Ising POP concert with all the school children participating are also events in May. Reports on these last two will be in the July magazine. There will be a Safari Supper on Saturday 30th June. This is always a very enjoyable event. Tickets from church members. The main event in June is our Rose Queen Fete and Fell Run of 16th June with the Rose Queen Service in church on the 17th. See the Flyer and all the details below.


Millie Booth, one of this year’s Rose Queens, goes on to Eaton Bank in September, she belongs to a gymnastic club where she goes each week, and also looks after her two gerbils and takes their dog, Elvis for walks with her eight year old sister.

Hollie Brunt is the other Rose Queen and she has another year at St. Mary’s School. She has two older brothers one who is at Eaton Bank and the other at Rease Heath. They have a cocker spaniel and a horse, Bella, and Hollie plays netball on Thursdays and is in the under eleven team as a defender.


Rhys Williams, one of the Rose Kings, has an annoying little brother!, one dog, three guinea pigs, plays rugby union with the Macclesfield club and also plays the cello.

Jack Worrall, the other Rose King, lives on the family farm. He has another year at St. Mary’s school. He thinks he might be a farmer when he grows up and at present likes helping with the sheep and cows and particularly driving the various machines including the tractor, digger and dumper truck.

As usual we will always be looking for helpers both on the day of the fete and beforehand. For those who have moved into the village more recently this is a good opportunity to get to know other people and find what a friendly community we all are. The following help is needed: labelling and sorting in school and setting up stalls, marques, etc - from 3pm and again from 6pm on Friday 16 June, laying out items on stalls from 10.30am on the day, manning stalls from 1pm, breaking down stalls etc. from 5/5.30pm after fete.


The Rogation Service was held up at Wincle this year, one of the wonderful sunny days we have been enjoying and we were able to have part of the service outside. Afterwards a group of us set off for a walk, not round the parish boundaries but up over the hills then down to the river, where we picnicked, and then up to Blaze Farm for a welcome ice cream. See the photo.

The plans for making the church more available to all for lots of different activities is now going ahead and a letter, “Space to Grow”, has gone out to everyone as we look for support as this is very much something that will add an important facility to our wonderful village.

It may not be widely known in the village, but there is a defibrillator outside Bobkins. We hope it is never needed.

This is something the village has had as a priority for many years. A place for community activities and worship that meets the needs of the 21st Century. The heating, lighting and sound equipment will all be renewed to enable talks, gigs, dances and other activities to take place in congenial surroundings with the addition of kitchen and toilets.


We now need to raise funds to match those of our sponsors from whom we plan to get grants, so this letter is going out to everyone in the village as we ask for support for this exciting project. Our village is expanding and it is important that we encourage new people who move in to participate in the community feeling in Bosley that was so strongly demonstrated after the Mill Disaster and that we have a building that we can all use.


There will be special fund raising events, for example a Light Festival in the autumn, and there will be collection boxes for donations at village events. Donations can be sent direct to the bank – Bank of Scotland, Account No. 12064903, Sort Code 16-17-12, or by cheque to St. Mary’s Church, Bosley, SK11 0NX. Envelopes are included with this letter so that if filled in Gift Aid gives us an extra 20% on whatever has been donated.

Bosley Church and Community News- May 2018


They tell us we are in for a heat wave, can we believe it after the long cold winter which doesn’t seem to want to burst into spring although the daffs are out and the days are longer? Maybe by the time this is printed it will all be forgotten!


Kim took our Palm Sunday service as we processed along from The Green to the church with the donkeys. See the photos. There was a large congregation on Easter Sunday when Ivan Whinton took our service and the Easter Egg Hunt afterwards was frantic as the children rushed round the churchyard and all seemed happy with what they had found.


We have at last got our Faculty from Chester to enable us to proceed with the changes planned for the church, with a kitchenette, new toilets, heating, lighting and sound. This is very exciting for the whole village as at last we will have a large building to use for community events and activities.


Macclesfield Male Voice Choir give a concert on 12th May at 7.30 in church. There will be refreshments in the interval and tickets, £8, from 01260 226542, from church members or on the door. This begins our fund raising for the church alterations. There will be a Safari supper on 30th June when each course is taken at a different house. Tickets will be available soon.


The school is giving celebration concerts in church at 2pm and 6pm on 24th May with ‘I Sing Pop’ , to enable us all to hear what they have learnt during the week. This is an activity shared between Chapel, School and Church. See the poster and school news below.


Good wishes to Jessica Wain and Christopher Le Quesne Mourant who come to church to be married on 19th May. Also we all wish a Happy Birthday to John Nixon and congratulations as he reaches his 21st on 4th May.


We look forward to the Rose Queen Fete and Fell Run which takes place on 16th June. The competitions this year are on the theme of ‘The British Countryside’ as many of the children in the Retinue come from a farming background.


The children’s Art competition is on this theme. Other competitions open to all are for:


1. A photograph depicting the countryside/country life with the best caption.


2. A miniature garden.


3. A Victoria Sponge


Our curate, Kim, has her priesting at Chester Cathedral on 2nd June and the following day she will be taking the service at Sutton St. James.
