Friends of St Margaret’s Church High Halstow

Friends of St Margaret's meet as necessary but aim to meet on a monthly basis.  Meetings take place in the Church.

If you are interested in joining please contact Mike Meredith by email m.meredith@zen.co.uk   

“The aim of the Friends is to support the Parochial Church Council (PCC) in maintaining the fabric, the churchyard and furnishings of St Margaret’s Church, High Halstow”

The aim of the Friends of St. Margaret’s Church, High Halstow, is to promote wide interest in the care and preservation of St Margaret’s Church and its history, to provide a focus of support for it and to support the (PCC) in maintaining the fabric, the churchyard and furnishings of the building.

It is recognised that many people see the Church in the community as an integral part of their environment, even if they do not attend services on a regular basis. Some can attend services only occasionally; others were baptised or married here; others are visitors or local residents who simply have an affection for the church which has been here for hundreds of years.

Please join us and help to ensure that future generations can continue to use and enjoy this lovely church.

Scarecrows on Parade

Following the success of last year's Scarecrow Parade we are repeating the event again this year.  The format this time will be to start erecting your scarecrows in your front garden from 17 June.  On 1 July they can all be taken to the Church Garden Party at the Rectory for display.  The two following weeks they can be viewed arranged around the Churchyard after which we request they are collected.

Let us try and beat last year's total of 75 scarecrows.
