The Friends of Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust

friends-leaflet-cover-2014Nottinghamshire’s churches bear witness to 1,000 years of Christian worship. Restoration costs continue to rise and sources for grants are under increasing pressure.

Since 1986 the Nottinghamshire Historic Churches Trust (NHCT) has awarded grants for repairs to stonework, roofs, windows, timberwork, bell-frames and bells and has helped to replace old heating and electrical systems.

Friends’ activities in 2016

The first visit of the year for the Friends was in April to the churches at Sibthorpe and Flintham, just off the Fosse Way.  About 60 Friends of the Trust and their guests dodged the dramatic showers, were privileged to visit the woodland walk at Flintham Hall, and finished the afternoon with a sumptuous tea in the village hall there.

The mid-summer visit  will be on Wednesday 20th July to St. Giles church at Holme, near Newark, and the two churches in Collingham, just up the road.  Dr. Chris Brooke and Professor Michael Jones will talk about these churches, and there will be tea afterwards.  Anyone wishing to join the visit should contact the Secretary on nhct@hotmail.co.uk.

Secretary
