If you're wondering what this lady is doing to the Rector of Nantwich (the Rev Peter Chantry), reassurance can be found in her right hand. She is attempting to fix a large holly buttonhole to his coat. Members of St Mary's Church sold the buttonholes - as a way of raising money for the church's Restoration fund - as a reminder of those worn by Nantwich people after the lifting of the siege of Nantwich.
