Selma's Funeral is on Wednesday 3rd April at All Saints Church, Marple at 11.00am

Selma's family has advised that if anyone wants to give a gift in her memory there are two suggestions from the family - one local and one in Uganda, both of which Mum supported:

“Girlguiding Marple District”: Selma was a Guide when she was a teenager, and maintained a link with the local group all her life. Contact Sarah Holton, c/o All Saints’ Church, Marple SK6 7LD.

“The Potter’s Village Trust”: The Potter’s Village is a Child Crisis and Medical Centre in Kisoro, South West Uganda. Abandoned and orphaned babies find care and new hope in the Crisis Centre. Contact Mrs Brenda Beardwood, Friends of Potter's Village, c/o All Saints’ Church, Marple SK6 7LD.

In memory of Selma Fielding (January 1930 - March 2019)

It was very sad to see this announcement via Selma's Facebook account on Friday 22 March:

"This is Joyce, Selma’s daughter, writing with the very sad news of Mum’s passing last night after a short battle with pneumonia. Throughout her life, Mum had a strong personal faith in Jesus as her Saviour and Lord so she is now with Him in her eternal home. She has been a wonderful mum, grandma and great grandma and will be greatly missed. RIP."

Selma was a lovely lady and I really enjoyed getting to know her as she talked and wrote about her memories of Marple as a young girl - she was very keen to have them published to a wider audience and I was very pleased to help with that. Selma also shared a good number of her local photographs for the Virtual History Tour and was very supportive of the work done by Friends of the Park.

To commemorate Selma's life I have merged the two main articles she provided - her video Memories of Marple and her memories of living on Bowden Lane as a child, growing up in Marple and spending her whole life here.

Rest in Peace Selma.
