Exciting News!

St Owen’s Extension: The Final Push

We are getting ever closer to completing our fundraising for building St Owen’s extension. Thanks to all who have donated to this final push - we now have only £15,000 to find (or just £12,000 if all future gifts attract Gift Aid).   We bought the building stone in December to avoid the price rise due this month and we expect the builder to be able to start on site in April.  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
