It costs over £40 each day to run St Peter’s. As we do not receive any grants or support from local or national government but rely entirely on our own fund raising your support is really important.
During the pandemic St Peter's has not been open as usual and this has greatly reduced our income.
Our main fundraising event, the Church Fete, has been cancelled for 2 years running along with most other fundraising events. This has left us worryingly short of money with which to pay our basic outgoings and keep the church building in good condition.
In 2019, our income for the period March to August was £11,700; in 2020 it was just £5,900 - a shortfall of £5,800. By the end of 2020 we have little left to cover normal expenses or the repairs urgently needed to the tower.
Please help us now to secure the future of our much loved village church by making a donation at
