New chairs

Nouvelles chaises installées en juillet 2105-2

The chairs of the church, installed almost 70 years ago, when Father Bernard was parish priest of Tocqueville, were beginning to show serious signs of weakness, which could pose safety problems.

Our Association, thanks to the products of its various events, with the support of the municipality of Tocqueville, decided to finance the replacement of the chairs in the nave.

The have just been installed, which gives our church a new youth!

Until the mid-20th century, the church of Tocqueville was equipped with pews as shown in this photo. Such ancient pews still exist in several churches in the Val de Saire.

Some of these pews were reserved to families of the commune that paid for. In this case they had their name on a plate ; you can still see them in some churches.
