Friends of St Mary’s

              The “Friends of St Mary's” meet monthly as a group of community friends.

We are not a fund-raising group, although we do hold occasional events to raise funds for smaller items required by the Church or as a contribution towards restoration projects.  You do not need to be a church-goer to be a member.

The annual subscription is £10 and and we ask visitors pay just £3 for our meetings in Mudford Village Hall which start at 2:30pm, and are held in February, April, October and November.  

Transport is shared for outside visits and will be arranged nearer the time.
