The ‘Friends of St. Peter’s’ was formed in 1995 by two parishioners in this rural village in Leicestershire - Kathryn & Shirley - after they had attempted to clean-up the mess the pigeons had made in the ‘Tower’. They realized that St. Peter's needed help that could not be provided in the foreseeable future because of financial restrictions.
Today, over 25 years later, the organization is thriving and has over the years provided over £40,000 funding for many projects that just would not have otherwise been achieved. These funds cannot be raised without the help of people like you!
There are two ways you can help; firstly by attending one of our fun and varied village events.
In addition, you could become a 'Friend'. Subscriptions are just £5 per person per year.
The Friends is a purely voluntary organisation and is recognised as charitable by HMRC for tax purposes. To find out more or inquire about becoming a Friend.
Projects that the The Friends of St Peter's have financed have included the installation of water to the church and the construction of toilet and kitchen facilities. The 'Friends' have also funded - with the help of grants - the installation of a new heating system and in 2019 supported the installation of three extra bells in the belltower.
