100th Birthday at Garden Lane

A special birthday 'get together' for a life-long member of the Methodist Church in Chester took place at the Uniting Church in Garden Lane, Chester when Molly Whittingham received around 100 well-wishers both family members and friends and indeed, The Lord Mayor of Chester Councillor Alex Black and the Lady Mayoress, Mrs Janet Black, on her birthday Thursday 15th November 2018. To mark this special day, Molly also received greetings from Her Majesty the Queen.

Molly Whittingham was born in on 15th November 1918 and was Christened at Garden Lane Methodist Church on 15th December that year. She has attended that church throughout her life seeing it join together with the Sealand Road United Reformed Church to become the Uniting Church in Garden Lane. She married her husband Paul Ward Whittingham at the church on 2nd October 1965. She was for many years a Sunday School teacher and until recently the church organist.

In lieu of birthday presents, Molly asked that donations made be given to the Local charity Save the Family and a Methodist world mission charity called All We Can. The total raised to date exceeds £700 and may increase further.
