On the 25th April 2020, Friends of St Mary’s Church will be holding an evening of jazz, jive, swing, boogie and rock ‘n’ roll at Higham memorial Hall. All proceeds will go towards the renovation fund for the spire at the church.

In order to get this event off the ground, Higham Parish Council were approached by Friends of St Mary’s Church at the January Parish Council meeting and asked for financial assistance to cover some of the costs involved in putting on this worthwhile and exciting event in our village. The result of the vote was unanimous, and the Parish Council pledged the £600 requested.

St Mary’s Church is no longer used for regular worship and is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust. The Friends of St. Mary’s supports the work of the Trust, and works to enhance visitors’ experience of the church, hold fundraising events, organise events for children and adults, and promote the building’s unique appeal.
