To celebrate more than a century of worship at St Martin’s, an A5 booklet is now
available. It consists of seventy-two pages (including the covers) in full colour.
The paper is 130gsm silk (the same quality as the History of Preston book) and the
booklets are bound, not by staples, but perfect-bound using glue. The cover is of
thick paper and laminated. There are more than ninety photographs in the booklet.
The design approach is similar to the History of Preston.
The booklet can be ordered for a contribution of £5.00 (plus p&p of £1.40, if applicable).
To order a copy, please email me at email@example.com
The contents include an in-depth review of Preston’s religious history; the church
at Preston School; events leading up to the building of St Martin’s; the laying of
the foundation stone and the consecration; the gifts of furniture; worship at St
Martin’s during the twentieth century; the churchyard; how the fabric has been maintained;
prominent members of the congregation, from the clergy to those who have given service
from the village; a complete listing of marriages and burials/ashes laid to date
and a note of the earliest baptisms.
Here are some sample pages to illustrate the booklet’s presentation:
