    World War 1 - 100 Year Commemorative Kneeler

    Fourteen people have signed up to stitch an altar kneeler for the Craven Chapel, in St Mary’s Church, to commemorate 100 years of the ending of World War 1.  Stitching will start in January and hopefully the kneeler (in three sections) will be completed by Remembrance Day 2018.  The kneeler has been designed to incorporate the names of the forty soldiers from our parish who fought in WW1.  The total cost of designing and supplying the kit to make the kneeler is £558.  If you would like to help by stitching, or perhaps making a donation towards the cost of the kneeler, please contact Revd Norma Fergusson or Margaret Smith.  Haine & Smith Opticians have already kindly donated £100, and have given some 15% discount cards off the cost of new glasses purchased from them.  If you would like a discount card please email
