Exciting News!

St Owen’s Extension: The Final Push

We are getting very close to completing our fundraising for St Owen’s extension. We are now short of only the last £26,000 (under £21,000 if gift aid is applicable). If we can raise this money over the next few weeks, it is possible that the builder could start early in the new year. Please help us in any way you can: cheques payable to “Friends of St Owen’s” can be sent to the treasurer Simon Clark at 53 Grange Lane, or give on-line (details of how to do this from Edward (826551) or David (407351)). Please use as a reference: “your name” St O BF .
