The Friends of St. Mary’s (Registered Charity 1114809) fundraises for repairs, restoration work and improvements to this Grade 1 listed building, for it to continue as a place of worship and a community venue for use by all.

Since 2006 the Friends has raised over £50,000 for such work, but more fundraising is needed to help get this building into good order for the next generation. We intend to do just that, and enjoy ourselves along the way!
