They Came, They Sang
Reported by: Hubmaker MediaFollow Hubmaker Media on FacebookHubmaker Media on Twitter

Seventy five people gathered at Holy Trinity, Tarleton on April 12th, the Saturday afternoon before Palm Sunday, to rehearse and then sing Stainer’s Crucifixion. They came from Blackburn, Bolton, Kirkham, Leyland, Southport, and places in between, with one from Edinburgh – though she has family in Preston – to join members of the choirs of Holy Trinity and St Mary the Virgin, Rufford.

The massed choristers were conducted by Canon Ian Garden (organist and choir master at Tarleton and Rufford) with organ accompaniment by retired cathedral organist Hugh Davis, and the soloists were local RNCM postgraduate student Philip Clieve, and Brian Lancaster, from Lancaster.

After an afternoon of strenuous rehearsal, the choristers re-assembled for the start at 7.00pm, and as many people again arrived to listen and to join in the hymns that are an essential part of Stainer's 'Meditation for choir, soloists and congregation.'

The event was a fund-raiser for The Leprosy Mission and raised at least £640. Ian Wells, Reader at Holy Trinity and local voluntary speaker for TLM, who with his wife Sue set up the event, said: “It was a marvellous evening: the singing was superb. One chorister said on leaving: 'It was the best performance of Crucifixion I've sung in.' A member of the congregation said quietly: 'That was very moving.' Thanks to all who took part and donated.”

Hesketh Bank gets all loved up
Reported by: Hesketh with Becconsall Parish Council
Hesketh with Becconsall Parish Council have got all loved up and funded three new kissing gates to replace old stiles on the river Douglas path through the village.

The brand new kissing gates, which are part of a wider project to set up a village trail and ultimately a Linear Park, were installed in response to feedback from residents that the stiles were old and difficult to use.

New kissing gates for access to the River Douglas at Hesketh Bank“In this year of our Love Hesketh Bank campaign, we are pleased to be able to make such improvements in the village for the benefit of everyone who loves Hesketh Bank,” said Steve Kirby, Parish Councillor.

Aptly fitting in with the Love Hesketh Bank campaign, kissing gates are so named because their hinged part touches, or ‘kisses’, both sides of the enclosure rather than being securely latched like a normal gate. However, that hasn’t stopped the first person through such gates using them to demand a kiss in return for closing the gate for the next person to gain entry.

The whole of 2014 will play host to the Love Hesketh Bank campaign in which residents and businesses are being asked to take pride in the village and care for their surroundings.
