Photo Archive

We are still building a photographic Parish Archive – so take a trip down Memory Lane, look through your old photo albums and bring us ANYTHING that relates to St Mary’s and its people…… In these hi-tech days, we just need to scan your photograph into the computer and can return it to you, unchanged within seconds! Please help us if you can – the more material we have, the more interesting and nostalgic the end result!!
