What are “The Friends”?
It would seem to me that anyone moving into the Village would hear “The Friends of St Cyr” would think that it’s some sort of secret sect or an order of medieval knights building a pyramid under the foundations of the church.! Perhaps it’s a small clique of gymslip teenagers.
Actually the Friends of St Cyr is neither of those. It’s just a group that started out in 2006 to raise money for the Fabric of the church. Half the “Friends” are not regular church goers, they just want to see our church buildings preserved and looked after.
However, like many societies which start out with one single mission, the “Friends” has evolved over the years and partly because of it’s fundraising needs also does much to bring the village together both in spirit and a corporeal way.
Time will eventuate
The Friends has now been in existence for 15 years and time will eventuate that new “Friends” are needed to step up as old “Friends” step back. So, are you able to answer yes to any of these questions?
- Able to bring any expertise to the group?
- Want our village to keep our church?
- Able to give time for the village?
- Want to help keep the village together socially?
- Able to work on small committees?
This years AGM is on Tuesday 23rd March and anyone is invited to join. Especially if you would like to join the committee. If you are, please feel free to contact our Chairman Russell Legg or Secretary Jill Holloway.
