Big Success for GFS!
Congratulations to members of All Saints' Branch of the Girls' Friendly Society. At a recent GFS event, they were awarded A+ and the shield for the best exhibition. You can see the excellent exhibition in church. They were runners up in the drama contest and Isobel Joyce won the cup for best actress. To cap it all, they also won the Lady Hindle cup for best branch. Well done to all members and helpers.
The Girls’ Friendly Society (GFS) is for girls aged 7 - 18. They meet at church (outdoors in summer) every Friday evening at All Saints' church between 7.00 pm and 8.30 pm. New members are very welcome.
