|Friends of St Mary's|
|Friends of St Mary’s is an organisation whose sole purpose

raises funds in a number of ways: by donations, member subscriptions and by carrying out fund raising activities.
For details of events .....
The current project is to have the roof on the north side of the church repaired.
Many people have fond memories of St Mary’s: taking part in worship; their wedding; a child’s baptism; the peace of the churchyard; the chiming of the clock; the ringing of the bells; or the support they have felt at a funeral. Many would be saddened if St. Mary’s were to fall into a state of disrepair and as you will appreciate the onus of raising money rests with the people who use the church and those who would miss it if it was not there.
The church was built in 1152 and has been looked after by successive generations it is up to us to look after it for future generations.
Friends of St. Mary’s invite you to share in the preservation of the historic parish church of St. Mary the Virgin
