UNIQUE antique items that form part of Warrington’s history will be up for sale this month.

AN attic sale with ‘unmissable bargains’ is set to take place at St Oswald’s Church next week.

The historic and beautiful Winwick church will hold its third sale on Saturday, April 13, between 10am to 4pm in the church hall.

Items donated by the public will be up for sale in order to raise money for the church’s repair and maintenance costs.

The church has already had two successful sales within the last year, selling new and vintage clothing.

The upcoming sale will feature clothing once again, as well as a wider range of items including pottery, furniture and jewellery.

Among the donations already received by the event organisers are two antique objects which are closely tied to Warrington and Winwick’s history.

One of those items is a large china bowl, which is over 100 years old and was used in the kitchen by four generations of a local forming family.

The other antique item is a decorated soup plate which once belonged to Richard Fairclough, the founder of Warrington’s first large secondary school which opened in Latchford in 1933.

Toys, books and artwork will also be up for grabs at the sale, as well as refreshments which will be available throughout the day.
