Christ Church 88 years ago

Egg Sunday. Another record!

April 23rd resulted in the collection of 2,635 eggs from Christ Church parish, of which total 1,887 were contributed by Meaford, largely through the untiring efforts of Mrs Lindsay, to whom out cordial thanks are due. These eggs were subsequently distributed between the N. Staffs Infirmary and the Stafford General Hospital, from both of which institutions letters of thanks have been received.

Milwich Church members collected 1880 eggs from local farmers and the congregation for Stafford General Infirmary. The eggs were presented to the Matron and a service of dedication held. The eggs were preserved until as and when they were required.
