SUPPORTING WATERAID
Our Harvest Festival is on 5th October this year, and our special collection this year will be for Wateraid. Wateraid is an international charity that transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene, and sanitation. Can you imagine life without safe, clean water? For 748 million people, it’s a daily reality. They have no choice but to get water from wherever they can. Over 500,000 children die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. That’s over 1,400 children a day. Wateraid works with local partners to help communities get access to safe water and sanitation, and create locally-owned, long-lasting solutions. It has been doing this since 1981. We are asked to help Wateraid achieve their aim of clean water, safe toilets, and basic hygiene for the world by 2030.

SEARCHING THE CHURCH REGISTERS
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.
