On Saturday 29 September, 17 people and 2 dogs set off to walk 13.5 miles from Mow Cop to Englesea Brook. We left at 9.30am, and 15 people and 1 dog finally made it to the Museum for tea and cakes just after 5.00pm. The others left us half way, and a great time was had by all. Particular thanks to Nigerl Jones who planned the route, which was varied and not too hilly! The weather was also kind to us.
We are raising money for an Interpretation Board at Englesea Brook as part of the Two Saints Way, a 90 mile way marked route from Chester to Lichfield. This will be an opportunity to welcome new visitors to Englesea Brook, and tell them about the movement called Primitive Methodism, which began at Mow Cop, and the unique contribution it has to make to our Christian pilgrimage.
Thanks to the efforts of John Cornell and Don Fanstone, members of the Parish Council, local residents and great supporters of Englesea Brook, Jill, our Director, was presented with a cheque for £450 at the end of the walk, and there is more to come. Special thanks to all who took part or sponsored those who did, and thank you to Margaret for the wonderful cakes at the end!
If you would like to know more about the Two Saints Way, visit www.twosaintsway.org.uk. Hopefully, next year you will be able to come and see the interpretation board in pride of place in the graveyard.
