I was very saddened to hear this summer that Sandra had passed away. We were friends from primary school to our late teens and I will remember her as a very intelligent person, bubbly, positive, outgoing and a good friend. It was touching to see the Church full at her funeral.

Brownie Guide & Cub Scout Reunion
Below are photos from our Brownie Guide & Cub Scout Reunion at 12th and 13th June 2010 organised by former Girl Guide Captain Dorothy Haslem. Looking through all the memorabilia Dorothy had collected, we all had a lovely time and old friends were happily reunited! My thanks to Shirley Bentham (nee Haslem) for these wonderful photos which include some of the Church which we opened up for visitors.
Miriam, friend of Shirley squeezed into her old Guide Uniform, much to the amusement of Dorothy and her family, Susan, Reg and Shirley.
This tea set was bought by a previous Guide Captain for use at special events and is now kept by Dorothy along with many Guide badges, books and albums. Matt Moneypenny's Akela uniform was kindly loaned for the day by his grandson, Peter.
Apart from old friends from South Liverpool we met visitors from Lowestoft, Penketh, Preston, Widnes and Pontefract! We also welcomed Ken and Edna Cahill, Fred Day, June Dolby and Joyce Salmon (both formerly Wilsher) John Goodale, Joan McBride, Phyllis Alger (nee Grogan).
Visitors shown here include Barry and Jenny Moneypenny, Hannah Watson, Paul and Rachel McDonough, Barbara and Leslie Hughes, and Tom Whatmore with the old Brownie, Guide, Cub and Scout flags alongside the Cub Wolf head complete with Cub names on the ribbons. Elsie Gaulton came along to meet Dorothy who she worked with in the Crescent Chemist in 1949!
Some of our visitors couldn't resist squeezing up the tower staircase into the belfry!
Many thanks to those who brought along their own memorabilia and donated various items including the Scout Log Book and local photographs some of which will be included on the website as soon as possible. And thank you so much to Dorothy and her family for a wonderful reunion and the opportunity to meet old friends and recall very happy memories!
