Friends of St. Mary’s – Proposal for the Future

The future:

The Friends as it is now, with its Constitution, changes from a social and fund-raising group to a subscription based support group for the fabric of the church, with funds to be held in a restricted Parochial Church Council account, to be accessed after consultation with representatives of the Friends.

The membership by subscription would be £10 be per annum for a single person or £15 for a couple, if possible by standing order with Gift Aid applicable for tax payers.  If you would like to join, please contact Jan Harrison on 812248 for an application form, or email

Benefits of being a Friend would be a discount of 25% on tickets for fund-raising events like concerts.

An annual Friends Festival should take place as now, with a short service, entertainment and nibbles.
