The Vicar of Leigh
Come round the font with the babies, and remove all bonnets please ... Who was St Mary? -Jesus' mum that's right.... It's the Mogadon effect - everyone goes to sleep when the vicar arrives.
Jack Finney first came to Leigh in Lancashire more than 20 years ago, as a curate at the parish church. Last autumn, he returned as Vicar of St Mary's, next to the open-air market and the Town Hall.
