Every month we get enquiries about entries in our parish records, family tree questions and many more and we are very happy to help where we can.  As you can imagine this takes time to search things out properly and thoroughly and it falls to a very small number of volunteers. Manchester Diocese charge a fee of £21 for such searches and the PCC now feel the time has come to request this fee before the search is done.  £13 is forwarded to Manchester Diocesan Board of Finance and £8 kept by St Katharine's Church.  We do hope you understand - good luck with your searches and do e-mail us if you need our help. The registers pre-1947 are kept at the Lancashire Record Office in Preston 01772 533039 - (closed Mondays) so give them a call if you are thinking of calling in.

If you are interested in needlework you are welcome to come along and join with like-minded people for a friendly Monday morning at St Katharine's. Bring your own work, or join in with one of our projects or just come for a coffee and a chat! We meet each Monday (except Bank Holidays) from 10am to 12.30pm. For more information please contact Mary Pryle 01204 697763. We're taking part in the Woollen Woods Project at Sizergh Castle this summer. (See website at Canopy Arts).

If you would like to go please get in touch.
