22nd JULY 2008
Restoration of the Parish War Memorial

The cleaning and renovation of the parish war memorial, which commemorates those men of
St. Mary’s parish & school who died in the Great War 1914-1918, has now finally been completed.

The restoration of the war memorial has been timed so that the memorial would be restored and looking smart for the 90th anniversary of armistice day, 11th November 1918.

The small untidy looking plants surrounding the war memorial are box trees, hopefully. in the fullness of time we will have a neatly clipped small box hedge on three sides of the memorial.

Grateful thanks are due to all those people who contributed to the cost of restoration of the parish war memorial.

Our New Website

At long last, after weeks of trials & tribulations, we were finally able to publish our new website Layout on 21st June 2008. By the end of June we had succeeded in re-creating almost all the features of the old website.

The management of the website is now completely in the hands of myself and our new assistant website editor, Mrs Margaret North, who has worked tirelessly as we both struggled to master the concepts of our new website software “NetObjects Fusion”. We both now seem to have grasped some of the basics and hopefully will become proficient in the fullness of time.

The new arrangement means that we are able to add to and improve the website on a weekly basis.

Please visit our new website at www.stmarysdavyhulme.org on a regular basis as we expect to be making frequent changes and additions to it.

If you have any comments, criticisms or suggestions for changes or additions to the Website, please e-mail me at davidmackereth@hotmail.co.uk and subject to our own technical limitations, we will attempt to incorporate any suggestions you make in the Website.

David Mackereth

Website Editor
