One of our church fundraisers is a ‘100’ club. This was started in 1990 by Jean Williams and has raised money for the church fabric ever since. As usual with 100, 200, etc clubs, half the money subscribed goes into prizes for the participants and half goes towards the repair and maintenance of the ‘fabric’ of the church. There has been many calls on the money raised ; new roofing on the tower and the nave, repairs to the buttresses, rebuilding the wall opposite the school, resurfacing the path from the lych gate to the church – and many more. The money has always been put to good use.
If you have a soft spot for the church on the hill and would like it still to be there for you, your children and grandchildren for many years, please would you join us? The subscription is £10 per year per number. Half of the monies that come in are distributed back in modest prizes, and there is no limit to the number of tickets you can hold. Over the years some couples have bought new subscriptions on a fairly regular basis as the grandchildren arrive!
