Wesley Guild "Any Questions" Evening
We are now well into our Wesley Guild winter programme of devotional, Christian service, literary, and social and musical evenings. Last Monday, as part of the Literary section, we had an "Any Questions" evening. The panel consisted of (left to right, standing, in the photograph) Rev. Patrick Rudden (retired Methodist Minister), Mr Stan Woods (retired teacher), Mr Norman Oldham (Magistrate and Chairman of the Bench) and Mrs Karen Drayton (Midwife and Local Preacher). They responded to questions that ranged over concerns at the redevelopment of the site of a local disused asbestos factory, the closure of the Law Courts in Widnes, the effect of recent bad weather in closing schools, likes and dislikes in television programmes, and favourite books to read on a desert island.
The question master for the evening was Dr Stuart Longworth, the Guild General Secretary, who solicited additional comment from the audience. A good evening was enjoyed by about 45 Members of the Guild.
