The Rector/aka Ministry Area Leader John ( MALJohn ) thanks the amazing  generosity of parishioners and members of the general public who, in response to his Crowd Funding/Just Giving Appeal,  have raised sufficient funds to buy, not one, but six new benches to be sited in  various locations dotted around the church grounds.  Our vision is to create a welcoming environment into which all members of the local community are invited to  turn aside amidst the hustle and bustle of village life and share in the peace and tranquillity of St Mary’s Churchyard.

Our indefatigable Leader is currently looking into the mysteries of cement mixing to provide a stable footing for some of those benches which are to be located on the grass and amongst the trees.  If you know anything about laying concrete and would like to help in this community project, please contact him. His telephone number is shown on the Home Page of this website, or you can contact him via the St Mary’s Facebook page, the link for which is also to be found on our Home Page.

If you’d like to make a donation to this worthwhile initiative but haven’t done so yet, there’s still time! Details of the Crowd-Funding Appeal may be found under ‘Announcements’ on the Home Page.
