The Friends of St. Faiths are a group of people who help to maintain the fabric of our lovely church by making regular donations either monthly or once each year. The funds are used to support projects such as maintaining memorial stones, repairing the gutters, replacing stonework and trimming the yew trees. These projects are essential to ensure that the church is kept in good condition so that it can be enjoyed by future generations. We are separate from the church committee who organise the day to day management of the church. The Friend’s meet once a year to discuss projects for the future year.
It would be lovely if you would like to join us for this year’s meeting which will be held on Saturday 14th October during a visit to the churches of Kilpeck and Hoarwithy.
We have booked the minibus and plan to leave Overbury at 9.30.We will visit Kilpeck in the morning; they have an audio guide which can be downloaded from their website onto a mobile phone (http://kilpeckchurch.org.uk). They also have a lot of information for visitors in the church. I have contacted a local pub, The Plough Inn at Little Dewchurch, which offers a range of lunchtime dishes, or you are welcome to bring a picnic along. In the afternoon we will visit the church at Hoarwithy which is an unusual mixture of Italianate and Romanesque Revival architecture. We should get home at about 5.30pm.
If you would like to join us for the trip please phone or email me to book your place. Please contact me too if you would like to know more about the Friends of St Faiths.
