CHILDREN showed their love for their community when they gave out hearts to a church congregation to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Pupils at Blackrod Church School have been learning about John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement, who had spoken about how his heart had been warmed after attending a church service.

The children used Valentine’s Day to celebrate their learning and tell others what warmed their heart.

The hearts were given out at a church service yesterday. James Stephens, aged eight, said: “I like being with my family and my teachers.”

Alice Purdham, added: “I enjoyed making the hearts because I like art, and animals warm my heart.”

Four romantic couples were set to tie the knot today at Mere Hall Register Office.

Another happy couple were due to get married at the Albert Halls in Victoria Square.

Indoctrination at an age when they know no better is nothing short of abuse.
