Appeal for information on Methodist church

First published in Letters

I am currently working on a new publication about the History of the Grove Methodist Church.

I have gleaned a lot of information from a booklet produced for the centenary of the church in 1968, written by the Rev J Stanley Mathers, and also How Methodism came to Horsforth, written by his daughter, Christine, 15 years ago.

However, I am also looking for any photos of events over the last century and also any recollections by members from the church and past members of youth organisations, Scouts, Guides and the youth club, for example.

I would prefer these, in electronic format, to be sent to me at but photos also can be posted to me for scanning to my address: JD Burland, 76 The Whartons, Otley, LS21 2BS.

If you require further information, please ring me on 07725434036.
