  1. Thanks so much for this very welcome publicity – close at hand to Bidston, St James’ church is open for the first time for HODs – a very welcome addition as itbuilding began in 1845 so it is one of the oldest Victorian churches in Birkenhead.
    The dates and times are Sat 10 Sept. 11am to 3pm and Sun 11Sep 10 am for reunion service.

    • Thanks for leaving a comment about the heritage open days at St. James’ Church.

      I hope both the open day yesterday and the reunion service went well.
