Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

CHAIR­MAN of Prest­bury Par­ish Coun­cil, Arthur Dicken, and Rev Pa­trick Angier hosted the An­nual Par­ish Civic Ser­vice at St Peter’s Church, Prest­bury.

This year the ser­vice also com­mem­o­rated the Queen’s 90th birth­day.

The ser­vice was fol­lowed by cof­fee and bis­cuits in St Peter’s Rooms be­hind the church.

Rev Angier pre­sented a copy of a book, ‘The Ser­vant Queen’, a record and trib­ute to the ser­vice of the Queen pro­duced by The Bi­ble So­ci­ety, to the lead­ers of civic and vil­lage or­gan­i­sa­tions at the ser­vice.

Mr Dicken said: “The ser­vice was a mov­ing trib­ute to the work of the Queen on her of­fi­cial birth­day, com­bined with our an­nual Civic Ser­vice where we cel­e­brate, and thank God, for all the good things we share through liv­ing in this vil­lage.”

He added that the ser­vice was ‘a re­minder of the Chris­tian val­ues’ shared at home, in busi­ness and in all the work done for the vil­lage.
