On behalf of the Blackrod Cemetery/Gardening group I would like to give heartfelt thanks to all members of “Ladies who Lunch”.
I was invited, nay summoned, by Janet Hollick to attend their August get together where I was presented with a very generous donation of £90 on behalf of the ladies, to go to help our voluntary group.
The people in our group were absolutely blown away by this very generous donation. We had just commissioned a plaque to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1st World War and had it installed at Blackrod cemetery. It is now proudly mounted on the wall of the cemetery chapel near to the cenotaph.
This generous donation will go a long, long way to paying for this plaque. Hopefully now when members of “Ladies who Lunch” visit or go past the cemetery they will be able to see the result of their generosity.
These ladies are so typical of the people of Blackrod who even when getting together for a meal and a chat, they are thinking of others. We are very lucky to live where we do and anything that can be done to make it even better can only be a good thing.
Many thanks, John Price
Next lunch will be at The Italian Orchard at Broughton, on Wednesday 17th October. Numbers are limited to 20 so it’s a case of first come, first served.
If you would like to come along please contact Janet on 01942 731164 as soon as possible to book a place and arrange transport.
Planning ahead – Ladies Who Lunch will be at Retreat Adlington for Christmas lunch. Anyone who is interested in going on Wednesday 12th December will need to book as soon as possible with Heather (01204 693609) and pay £10 deposit.
