Funeral Details For Mr Mac

Malcolm has kindly sent some more details over for the funeral of Mr Mac.  If you are attending the funeral and wake, can you please let me know so that I can keep Malcolm informed.  Please see the details at the bottom of this email.

As you may already have seen, depending on which earlier emails you have received, John Foley has drawn attention to the fact that parking in the streets near St. Matthews is very difficult as staff from North Manchester General Hospital now park there because the hospital has started charging for onsite parking. He therefore suggests that anyone who can should come by Metrolink. St. Matthews is about a 10 minute walk from Crumpsall Metro; the Irish Heritage Centre is even closer to Queens Road. If anyone wants help with travelling please let me know and I will try to help.

Jane has asked for numbers for the wake by 6th February. Please would you let me have them by 5th so that I can save her the job of tallying lots of individual replies. The three who have already booked dossing space at No 89 and the two who have told me they can’t come are excused from replying.

Family flowers only. Details of charity donations to follow.
