Flower Festival in St Andrew’s Church Maghull


15th – 19th May 2013

March 27, 2013

The idea started when the Rector of Maghull, The Revd Canon Nick Wells, of St Andrew’s, was clearing out his father’s house two years ago.  In the top room was a large model Hornby Railway.  Frank Hornby is buried in St Andrew’s Churchyard close to the Ancient Chapel and Nick wondered when Frank Hornby was born.  After research he found a copy the birth certificate which showed Hornby’s birth date as the 15th May 1863. This meant that in 2013 Frank Hornby would have been 150 years.

What good timing!  Just enough time to organise a celebratory event for the Community and celebrate Maghull.  Nick got together a few people who became the Trustees of the Maghull Hornby Festival charity and started working on planning the Maghull Hornby Festival.
