St Peter's Church Hall Weather Vane and books

The following lots are from St Peter's Church, Woolton. This is where Paul auditioned to join John's band and the rest is history. The items are sold to raise funds for the church.

Until recently this weather vane was in place on the church hall. It's quite hard to imagine all the history this item has seen, including a certain church fete in July 1957. Estimate £100-£120

The above Hymnal and Prayer book are from the Church and date from a time that means they would have been in use when John and his Auntie Mimi attended the church. They are being sold together in one lot with an estimate of £60-£70.
