St Mary’s News Items

From the Registers

We gave thanks for God’s gift of life at the Funerals of Jim Jackson, Marguerite Holland, Janet Bellwood and Eric Syril.

We welcomed into the Church through Baptism: Lucy Agnes James, Evie Hefferon and Eleanor Lamb.


Margaret Retires as Cleaner: I can hardly believe that I have been the cleaner in Church, the Parish Rooms and latterly the Parish Centre for the last 17 years. So it was definitely time for me to hang up my duster! I have enjoyed my time in these places and the people I have come in contact with. I especially found my Friday afternoons in Church a very peaceful time at the end of what were often very busy weeks for me. Thank you for the lovely flowers and the get together in the Centre and the cake. Margaret Sumner


We Welcome a New Cleaner : My name is Stacey and I live in Burley-in-Wharfedale with my partner and children. I have recently joined the team at St. Mary’s Church and parish rooms as cleaner. I have been made to feel extremely welcome by all the staff and the parishioners and I would like to say a big thank you for the help and support that I have received since starting this new role.
