Heritage Day

On a glorious September Day St Paul’s opened its doors to the annual Heritage Day event.

On display following restoration and erection in Church are three World War One Memorials, one from the Sale Presbyterian Church, which stood on Northenden Road and two from Sale Congregational Church which have been in storage since 1979 and have not seen the light of day for over forty years.
 

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. 

The photos below were taken on the day.
