The friends of the parish group raise money to help in the preservation and conservation of the fabric of the two churches.

Over recent years it has, inter alia, repaired and conserved the St Cecilia screen, assisted in the cost of redecorating St Bartholomew’s, assisted in the cost of overhauling St Bartholomew’s organ and made a sizeable donation towards the major re-ordering of St Christopher’s as well as a number of smaller items.

It is currently raising funds towards the cost of repairing and conserving the Flemish Glass in St Bartholomew’s.
