Mother’s Union at Carlin How Church

The Archive had assistance in resolving: who, where and why with this image. Andrew Downs told the Archive: ”This is at the west door of St Helen’s church, Carlin How; I would guess it’s a Mother’s Union ‘do ‘ as they are parading the banner of our lady, which is still in the church to this day. My mum – Marie Downs (nee Lancaster) has been organist here since 1960”. Derick Pearson tells us: ” The lady on the front row far right is Mrs Thornton; next to her is Mrs Nattress. The lady between the Vicars head and his crook is Mrs Webster and Mrs Hoggarth to his left. The only other person I can recognise is Mrs Hoggarth from Carlin How who used to play the melodeon”.
