REMEMBER SUSAN WHITSEY’S GREAT IDEA? of saving our unwanted and heavy small coins?

In August I counted and carried to the Bank over £30 in copper coins.

This week, in early February I counted out £51 in copper and silver, as a few kind and generous souls are now saving their 5ps and 10p pieces!

So PLEASE KEEP COLLECTING!; and when you come to our events, bring the unwanted coppers and 5p pieces; EVERY LITTLE HELPS!

watch this space; and see how much we can raise together!




We have planned some interesting events to help raise much needed cash to restore our Harrison 3 manual pipe organ!

Do take a few minutes to look at the lovely pictures of the stained glass and stately interior of our 114 year old church; and come to see it for yourselves to enjoy some or all of our programme over the next 18 months.

We have included something for everyone, children and parents, of all faiths or none; your presence will ensure we can keep our musical heritage alive!
