On a glorious September Day St Paul’s opened its doors to the annual Heritage Day event.
Highlights of the day also included guided tours of the Church Tower, a rare collection of old aerial photographs of Sale, a display of vintage domestic bygones and a unique opportunity to view the Parish Registers.
Victorian Afternoon Teas were served in the Church Hall with Harpist Becki McIlroy and the Sale Handbell ringers providing entertainment. A Barbeque and performances from the Bollin Morris Men and Sale Scout and Guide Band Band were held on the lawns.
Professional Storyteller Helen Stewart and a traditional Punch and Judy Show entertained all the family, plus Sale’s most famous resident Professor James Prescott Joule – the Father of the International Unit of Energy – made his usual appearance.
