Rose Queen service at St. James Church, Forton, Lancashire.

Forton enjoyed it’s annual field day on Saturday 30th June, with fantastic weather and lots of family fun. Most importantly, it also saw the crowning of our new rose queen, Grace.

Sunday also dawned bright and sunny, perfect weather for Grace to celebrate her inauguration within the welcoming fellowship of St. James.

Grace was ably supported by her retinue, and they all looked absolutely stunning. We wish them all the best for the coming year, and we feel sure they will represent our village well.

Art sale by local Lancashire artist Steven Hunt

Now on display in St. James church, artwork by Forton’s own artist Steven Hunt, is now on sale. This prolific artist is displaying his God-inspired creations of the last  10 years.

The pieces are all offered for sale without a price label, in recognition of the fact that admirers of Steven’s work may not be able to pay a specific price – instead, buyers are being asked to donate whatever amount they are able to. Every single penny raised will go towards the St. Pauls graveyard drainage project.

Members of the congregation both young and old were delighted to be able to see Steven’s work over the last decade, and some of the paintings have already been sold.

It’s not too late to see Steven’s work for yourself – and possibly grab a bargain too! His exhibition will be continuing over the next few weeks. Visit St. James church at the normal service times (click here for details) and you will receive our usual warm welcome. If you can’t get to the church within our normal opening times, please contact the vicar by clicking here, as it may be possible to accommodate your visit at another time.
