The Friends of St George’s raise money towards maintaining and managing the fabric of the church and churchyard. This is achieved through annual subscriptions and by putting on events throughout the year.
Since being formed in 1996 the Friends have donated over £50,000, with projects including repairing dry rot in the south wall, installing new interior lighting, building a servery in the south porch and repairing the church organ. In 2012 the Friends donated £8,000 to meet half of the cost of the works required following the quinquennial inspection.
Membership is open to all those who value the church and its churchyard as a focal point of the village and wish to see them preserved for future generations. If you would like to join please contact our Membership Secretary, Clive Turner:
