St. Leonard's Church Hall

The new refurbished Hall above replaced the original building. The hall was used by many groups in the area.

Back pre 1970 Roland Smith of Park Lane was involved with the Scout Group. Harry Kinsey was scout master for many years
Mrs. Huckbody and Miss Bagley (who was a teacher a Whinney Hill school ) took the Sunday School, in those days they had plenty of children but can't remember many of their names.  With the Brownies I did the usual getting them to obtain their badges for different things e.g. cooking, cleaning, sport etc.

We had a very good youth club held in the church hall on Park Lane, Bannister Sleight (we all called him Pop) ran it with the help of Frank Brunt, Sunday night was film show night, there was dancing, snooker, darts on other nights, we had a youth club trip every year.  


The first time I saw a t.v. was the one we had at the youth club, remember watching Cafe Continental on Saturday nights, we had the t.v. in the back room in a cupboard which was locked up when not in use. Then most people got a t.v. when it was the coronation.



Many thanks to Mollie Uttley for information above.
If you have a memory of the Church Hall your contribution would be a welcome addition to this page.
