What is a Friend?

The purpose of the Friends is to help raise money for specific church projects. Recent contributions from the Friends include retiling part of the nave, uncovering the beautiful stained glass windows unseen for more than 50 years and the intended redevelopment of the chancel.

The Friends also organise outings to interesting places and other events.

You do not have to be a churchgoer to become a Friend but in becoming one you will help ensure the future of an historic church which dates back more than a 1000 years. St Martin's is an important landmark in our village. Please help preserve it by becoming a friend or making a one off donation.
