Our Church, St. Mary's, is a treasure, to maintain it as such and to preserve it for our community costs money. The "Friends of St. Mary's" is a charity, supported by Leigh’s villagers and others, which pays for works which do not qualify for a Diocesan grant. Recent examples are some essential tree-felling and a new brick path in the churchyard.  Nothing is contributed to the Church’s clerical/ecumenical outgoings.  Quotes are sought for works, and the Accounts are independently verified annually - and anything spent by the charity will be detailed in the Parish magazine.

For those believers and 'non-believers' who wish to offer support, ‘The Friends’ is an easy and effective way to do so.  Might you help, too?  Donations can be 'one-off', or regularly via a Banker's order. Any and all contributions, of however much, will be useful and appreciated.

To Donate:
Simply contact Roger Field (details below) who will provide a simple form enabling a donation (including a Gift Aid Declaration so that St Mary's can claim a valuable tax benefit, if you wish).

The film club will be meeting next on June 10th at 10 for 10.30 in the Genner Rooms, on the side of St Mary’s Church, to watch ‘Keeping Mum’.  It is a comedy starring Roman Atkinson, Kristin Scott Thomas and Maggie Smith.  

We will start with a cup of coffee while we settle in to our sets. Please let me know if you are planning to come, especially if you need assistance to get to the Genner Rooms.

Everyone is welcome and will have a chance to decide on the next month’s film.  Do come.
