Friends Of St Mary's - Datchet St. Mary the Virgin
Saturday 31st December 2016 at 12:00 AM
Friends of St. Mary's FOSM is an association of people who support our Parish Church - the Church on The Green - and want it to remain at the heart of village life, now and for future generations. Though members may not necessarily want to attend its services, at some time in their lives they may look to St. Mary’s to host a Wedding, a Baptism or even a Funeral, and they help support the church through an annual subscription. The financial amount is decided by each member (minimum £10) and as well as providing FOSM members with a valuable connection to church, it helps, vitally, to keep St. Mary’s ‘open for business’. There is another side to the Friends - an annual social calendar more focussed on socialising than fund raising. The FOSM Committee seeks to offer a programme of activities for FOSM members to enjoy. Actually, non-members are welcome to join in all those activities too but the cost to them is always more than to members. Some activities are actually free to FOSM members but not to non-members, even though they may be regular church attenders. How to join: If you would like to become a member of FOSM, support the Church on The Green and join its social activities, please contact Ron Piggott. The Membership Secretary, Friends of St. Mary’s, Datchet, 73 Slough Road, Datchet, SL3 9AL Phone 01753 544309
