Welsh End Open Day 3

Welsh End Methodist Chapel hosted an Open Day on Saturday September 21st. An enjoyable afternoon was had as the sun shone and people from around the local area came and supported us. We had various stalls; Tombola, Cakes, Books, White Elephant, various games outside while inside we served refreshments and held a draw.

Many people spoke to our organist Mrs Mary Birch (94), who has been playing the organ and piano in the church since she was a teenager. A great day was had by all from the teenagers who attended to Mary.
A grand total of £325 was raised for donation to the Shrewsbury Ark.
Thank you to all who came and supported us.

On Sunday Sept 22nd we had our 160th Anniversary Service, the preacher was Rev Dr J Tomlinson from Sheffield. Soloist Miss Lucy Chidlow from Whitchurch also contributed to the worship.
This was followed by Afternoon Tea, during which we all had an enjoyable time reminiscing with Rev Tomlinson, who grew up in the Welsh End area.

On October 13th we had our Harvest Festival led by Mrs Susan Dutton. Musical items from soloist Elizabeth Whitfield and clarinetist Elizabeth Hicks were enjoyed after which we were able to chat over a lovely tea which was prepared by the ladies.

On the evening of Monday October 14th we had a Harvest Sale which was preceded by an informal service which included one hymn, a video and a short talk. Many locals were present who do not normal attend our regular services. It was a pleasure to welcome them.

On October 27th we were privileged to welcome Jacob Molyneux and the Ellesmere Vintage band. The band truly excelled themselves. What a fantastic evening!
