Peggy Taylor’s Kitchen

One of the early Methodists was Peggy Taylor, of whom it has been said – “she was a woman who was too poor to buy sugar but she was uncommonly strong in faith and humour, two qualities always essential in a pioneer”.
Peggy and Ann Loxdale worked closely together. With others they met at Peggy’s house for a cup of tea to plan how to provide a Meeting House. At that time tea cost 8/- a pound and sugar almost as much. Peggy confessed she had no sugar but offered her guests a lump of “penny an ounce” from the bottles of sweets she sold from her front window. Peggy obviously provided the refreshments hence the new authority approved kitchen is named after her.
