I was married in St Marks in 1967.It was our local church.Ilived at number 8 Argyll St,just across the road. As a bride it must have been the shortist trips to church for any bride.I was Brown Owl for the St Marks Brownies for number of years.I now live in Cyprus.Its a lovely picture of the old church.

I married my husband Don in St Marks on June 1961 and the vicar was Rev. Baty

I was Christened in this church in April 1936. I am viewing it now from Western Canada.

When I was around 10 (1945ish), I was in the choir, and also the Lifebuoys.. The Vicar at the time was a big, gruff Liverpudlian - a Mr Davey. He used to scare the socks off me.
His daughter (Miss Davey) was also quite a character...

I went to Church there in my youth. All those iron rails were removed for metal during the war. I used to sit on that wall when i was with my boyfriend. Am now viewing this from Georgia in America. I sang in the choir also.It really brings back memories.

Margaret....you weren't in the Royal Navy by any chance were you?


Comment by Margare Peters (Fletcher) on 16th August 2012 at 21:21
Yes, I was in the Royal Navy.

Hi Margaret - my - we don't half take our time answerin' I was in school with you - we spoke occasionally, we all used to sometimes 'muster' in Robin Park.
Aged 18, I joined the RN, and who should I bump into in the NAAFI club in Pompey was you. We had a quick chat, (was good to meet someone from my home town) - then went our separate ways. Small world. Still married and living in Plymouth. Regards.

David, your name sounded familiar, but I can't remember anything else about you. Do you keep in touch with any of the crowd we used to "muster" with in Robin Park? It was wonderful to hear from someone who knows me. Thanks for responding. My husband and I celebrated our 58th wedding annivesary in January of this year. He's not in the best of health, but I am still working three days a week.I am looking forward to hearing more from you.

Margaret - if you contact brian@wiganworld.co.uk - he will pass on my EMail address. Be better that way I think. I've already Emailed him.
