The following book has been recently published:
When John Douglas designed his church at the turn of the 20th Century, he probably didn’t realise that he was not only creating a perfect place for the faithful to worship but he was also producing a wonderful setting for the making of a Myriad of Memories. Since St John’s became a Parish Church for Sandiway in 1935, it has had seven vicars; nine lay readers; ten churchwardens; six full time musical directors; and a number of Sunday School, Youth and Mother’s Union Leaders. There have been weddings, baptisms and funerals a plenty and annual, special and historical events. Well over one hundred people have helped to put this book together. Many have sent their memories in writing, thirty have been interviewed in their own homes. Others have searched boxes in their lofts and attics to find old photographs and ephemera. Within, there are nearly 200 pages of quality paper packed with 366 colour and black and white photographs. All the memories are special and some are sheer moments of magic.
