Friends of St Nicholas

The Friends of St Nicholas (established in 2000) are a dedicated group that have raised over £32000 for the fabric of the Church since starting their work and they and the congregation continue to contribute to the upkeep of St Nicholas.

Would anyone like to sponsor a week of the floodlights? Could you spare £12 – just a pound a month would help us keep our wonderful church lit for a whole week! All we need is 52 lovely villagers, clubs or societies and it would help enormously with the running costs over the year. Thank you  Roy
