Friends of St Mary's


The Friends of St Mary's (FoM) was founded in 2005 and has proved invaluable in funding the repair and maintenance of the building and churchyard. The FoM is essential in providing the PCC with the necessary funds to enable it to continue to meet the cost of maintaining our ancient church. All donations are gratefully received and there is no minimum subscription.

Anyone interested in becoming a member of FoM should contact Douglas Lines (Email: or Tel: 07428 123060)
