A great night of entertainment with Wardle Anderson Brass Band.

If you like a good Brass Band than look no further than Wardle Anderson Brass Band.

St James has had a long relationship with Wardle Anderson to celebrate 10 years  of friendship were holding a Concert in Church.  All proceeds will be shared between church and Wardle Anderson with our share going specifically to our Wart Memorial Appeal Fund. Refreshments will be on sale along with a little bit of extra fun.

Tickets are available in church or from Village Treasures, Dale St, Milnrow.

So get your tickets and bring along a few friends and lets raise funds for 2 fantastic causes.

We’d like to thank Johanna and John from ELCONS Employment Law Consultants of Ripponden,  for their generous sponsorship of this event.

If you need more information for tickets etc drop us a line at st.jamesmilnrow@outlook.com

War Memorial Appeal – tubes & tubes of hope.

Thanks to your support our War Memorial Appeal has got off to a great start.  Thanks to our Smartie Tube appeal, people from all over are filling tubes of Smarties with 20p pieces. So far we’ve raised £430.

Thank you everyone. If you’d like a tube of Smarties just let know or call in church any Sunday morning 9-11 am.

War Memorial Appeal – update

Our Smartie Tube initiative is gaining momentum.  Thanks so far to Jean Calow, Walter Tann, Barry & Paula Shaw and everyone at Shaw Mitchell Accountants, Dale St Milnrow and the Senior Management Team at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

A tube of Smatries filled with 20p pieces holds £13, a massive donation which goes directly to our War Memorial Refurbishment Appeal.  You can collect your tube any Sunday from Church.

Thank you for everyone’s support.

War Memorial Restoration Appeal

We are pleased to announce the launch of our War Memorial Refurbishment Appeal.

2018 is the Centenary Year of World Ward I so we are attempting to refurbish the Ward Memorial to its former glory.  We are hoping to attract grant funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund and the local authority, but we need your help.

To get or fundraising started we’re offering you a tube of Smarties to enjoy …. but there’s a catch!  We would like you to return the tube filled with 20p pieces. Each tube filled to the top will hold £13.  If we could get 100 tubes returned that would be a fantastic start to our fundraising. Smarties are available at the back of church each Sunday.  Please see Linda Adshead for more information.

We will publicise anyone who returns a tube on our Facebook, Twitter and website. So if you’d like to take a tube to work and ask your colleagues for some help we’ll happily give your team, business, office some publicity.
