Date Friday 27th Jan 2017

Funeral Service @ 2pm at Levenshulme Baptist Church

There will be tea and coffee served after the service for people not going onto the crematorium.

Celebration Buffet and Open Mike @ 4pm till 8 pm at St Marys Church Hall

Elbow Street Levenshulme, Manchester M19 3PY

Drinks can be purchased during the evening



The roads are not great for parking in Levenshulme and we need to ensure there is room for the Family and the hearse (a big white camper van) to park so please do not park at the Baptist church.

The best place to park is at St Marys Church which has its own car park; you will then have to walk to the service at the church (directions found here –> funeral-directions )

(you can try the side streets around the church but you have been warned)

If you are only coming for the funeral service then you can park across the road at the Sidings pub.

Broom Lane, Manchester M19 2UB


If you need directions to any of the celebration events then contact Euan Cowen

and he can give you more detail.

There will also be a group of our African friends dancing for him. It wll be the send off he wanted so lets make it a day to remember so NO SADNESS, NO BLACK CLOTHES, NO TIES, NO SUITS (although scruffy jumpers are a must – espeically with a pen hanging from the neck) and  if you have sandels wear them and we will drink his health in tea. ( a bar is also available ).

If you intend to come to the celebration at St Marys then please let me know for the caterers (also if you have any dietry requirements – although lets face it you can’t be any fussier than Malcom was)

More information regarding the venues (including maps and postcodes – and parking) will be on this blog (and on a friendly facebook page) by the end of this week.
