I found your website after seeing a photo in the Bolton News.
My father's cousin was Miss Edna Booth who worshipped at St Mark's.
She ran a bakery and grocery shop on Fletcher Street which was
started by her parents, Joe and Polly Booth. She used to invite
us for Sermon's Sundays and Harvest Festivals and I remember going
to a show in the 1950's put on in the church hall. I have seen
her photo on two pictures on your website.

Just been made aware of your site by my sister Joy Hollick nee
On photo CH055 second row standing behind the un-named boy is
our great aunt Margaret Openshaw. She was Edna Booth's aunt who
is standing behind her. Margaret Openshaw had no connection with
St Mark's and would only have been there as a guest going on the
outing with Edna Booth.
