Thanksgiving service for Halton's honorary freeman
A SERVICE of thanksgiving is being held for Halton honorary freeman John Collins, who died last week.
It takes place at St Luke’s Church, Farnworth, Widnes, at 12 noon on Monday, October 7.
His widow, Rona, of Linden Way, says everyone is welcome and refreshments will be served afterwards at the Select Security Stadium.
She has requested that if anyone wishes to make a donation, these should be made to either ‘Friends of St Luke’s’ for urgently needed repairs to the 800-year-old church or ‘The Stroke Association’.
Former Mayor, Mr Collins enjoyed a long career in local politics, serving as a district, borough and county councillor.
A private family funeral was held yesterday.
