HALTON and St Helens VCA is looking for people to help contribute to a new heritage display at the soon to be re-opened St Marie’s on Lugsdale Road, Widnes

St Marie’s, which closed as a church in January 2007, will have a dual role in the future as office space for Halton and St Helens VCA and as a heritage centre.

The display in question will be a large Timeline and local people’s photographs and written memories will be posted upon it at the appropriate places.

“The stories and memories of local people are every bit as important to us as the bricks and mortar of the building” says Halton & St Helens VCA’s Matthew Roberts. “St Marie’s meant so much to local people. It wasn’t just a place of worship, it was the centre of the community.”

If you have a photograph or a story to share e-mail mroberts@haltonsthelensvca.org.uk or you can visit St Marie’s and one of the staff team will scan your photo or document.

Contributions are needed before 5pm on Friday, September 29.
