Historical Snippets

Quote from the a 1908 Ansley Church Magazine

‘At a well attended meeting it was decided to hold a Congregational Tea Party, to be followed by a Concert,…….The Wardens showed that a debt of about £10 remained due in connection with the recent beautifying of our Church’.

At this stage in our present fabric repairs it is to be wondered how much the debt will be once the church has again been ‘beautified’.

Remember the old proverb ‘ Ne’er cast a clout, till May is out

But a Quote from a 1958 Ansley Church Magazine

‘If with wool you have been clouted , You can shed if, I don’t doubt it Any woollen jumpers, vests or socks? Cast them now, into the Church porch box!’

It was a different form of recycling, the old wool was to be sold and the proceeds used towards the Bishop’s Appeal
