"I was delighted to have been asked by Rev Pat Christopher to perform the official opening of the newly-completed annexe to the Church on Kingsley Road on Saturday 26th March.
Christine and I were warmly welcomed and given a tour of the new facility, which is extremely impressive. It blends in perfectly with the original building and has added three rooms, plus extra kitchen and toilet facilities. There is a craft room, specially built to be child-friendly, and with excellent day-light. There is a very pleasant quiet room for meetings, and a church office. This will be a much-valued extra facility for both church and community use.
Already the Frodsham and District Choral Society rehearse at the church each week, and there are Men's and Women's Groups, Toddlers, Weightwatchers, Yoga, Stitching Groups and many others using the premises. It really is a community asset and a credit to all involved.
After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, in front of a very friendly crowd of members and representatives of builders and funding organisations, we were able to enjoy light refreshments and talk to a lot of old friends as well as the architect and building supervisor. The afternoon ended with a short but very enjoyable service, which included
presentations from Mrs Andrea Ellams, Children's and Family Worker, and Mrs Pippa Jacobson, School and Community Worker. Children from Weaver Vale School had already spent an afternoon in the Craft Room, and more work with our primary schools is on-going. Members of the Choral Society gave a rousing rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus to finish what was a most enjoyable event."
