'Courier' Tales



THE COURIER - 'TALES' (Excerpts from RAME parish magazine)

All editions of the 'Courier' have now been searched and records copied to this website.

Over many years, numerous articles have been published in the 'Courier' which give insight into the times and lives of those who have lived in or visited our area. THERE ARE 173 SUCH TALES CATALOGUED HERE.

Some came from living memory, others required much research. All provide elements of the 'jigsaw' which, in part, creates our heritage. We are very grateful to the Parochial Church Council for permission to re-produce these articles here and hope you will enjoy and perhaps learn something about past times...........

The Church has kept a library of editions published. However there are gaps! All the 1940s until 1949 are missing as are sone copies from the 50s. If you have old copies please pass them to us and they will be checked against the ones we already have.
