can you help?
The Friends of St Peter with St Margaret was established to help to raise the profile of the Parish by arranging events – concerts, exhibitions, etc – which in turn would help to raise money for development projects to beautify our churches and, by improving their facilities and standards of comfort, to make them more community-friendly. Events organised by the Friends will be advertised on this website, simply click on What’s On.
