Last December the place of worship launched an appeal to restore the pictures at the front of the church which for over fifty years had been covered by a blue curtain.

The curtain was put up to protect against further degradation of the reredos at a time when the church would have struggled to pay for its restoration.

Livesey’s Funeral Directors, Chorley, got the appeal off to an amazing start by donating £10,000 in memory of Mrs Jane H Livesey JP, the mum of the two current owners, Tony and Chris, who was a longtime member of St George’s.
