My earliest memories of Huyton parish Church go back to when i was a schoolboy and played Cricket for Neston Cricket Club. I remember coming to play on the Huyton ground and seeing a gentleman with a beard peering over the fence watching the game. that was when the Vicarage garden came down to the cricket groud before The Garth was built. It could well have been Mr Lewis, the then Vicar. I never thought for one moment that I might be one of his successors. That was over 60 years ago.
