PLEASE SUPPORT THIS CHRISTMAS VENTURE FOR OUR BEAUTIFUL CHURCH!!
In July, Lower Peover is celebrating 750 years since St Oswald’s church was founded with a four day ‘Celebration with Flowers’.
Throughout the festival, the church will be decorated by Knutsford Floral Design Club, who will be creating magnificent flower arrangements depicting significant dates in the history of the church.
On Friday, 5th July 2019 at 7.30pm, a concert will be held inside St Oswald’s Church. Entertainment will be provided by soprano, Linda Richardson. Linda was born in Cheshire and studied at the Royal Northern College of Music. She completed her studies at the National Opera Studio. Warrington Male Voice Choir, one of England’s oldest choirs, will be singing a selection of songs at the concert.
Fifty years ago, when Lower Peover celebrated 700 years since St Oswald’s Church was founded, a 7th centenary pageant about the history of the church and the village, known as the Peover Saga, was held in the grounds. Many local people will still remember watching and being involved with the pageant. A film of the Peover Saga will be projected on screen during the events.
On Saturday 6th July, St Oswald’s Church will be holding the annual church fete at 12pm.
On the morning of Sunday 7th July there will be a special service at St Oswald’s Church, where there will be a notable speaker.
Fundraising events for a ‘Celebration with Flowers’ are also taking place in advance of the main events:-
– A pudding and quiz evening on the 28th March 2019, 7.30pm at Plumley Village Hall.
– A walk between St Oswald’s Church, Lower Peover and St Lawrence’s Church, Over Peover, and back again, on the morning of the 11th May 2019, followed by refreshments. The walk will commence at St Oswald’s Church. Further details will be made available in the near future.
Lower Peover Parish Council has purchased SelectaDNA property marking kits for every resident to protect their valuables from burglary. The kits are an effective way to reduce crime when used in conjunction with local signage that is now installed in the village.
These kits are specific to each household, so they can make property identifiable to the police if it is stolen. The use of Selecta DNA in whole communities has shown that the area is less likely to be targeted for theft than an area that has not been covered, reducing incidences of burglary by up to 83% in some areas.
The next session for issuing the kits is taking place on Tuesday 16th October at 6pm at Lower Peover Primary School.
The kits will be available to collect following a short presentation by the Cheshire Police.
Sarah Morgan, the new clerk to Lower Peover Council, says ”The Council would like every resident to take up this offer and if you are not able to attend, please let the Parish Council know via phone or email and we will arrange a suitable time for you to be issued with your kit”
Lower Peover Parish can be contacted by phone on 07958055158 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
For further details on how the kits work, see the website at www.selectadna.co.uk
