What's happening at the church


Well Done Dickie!


Whilst out bird watching on a snowy day in December 2010, 76-year-old Dickie Dutton (seen above 2nd from right) fell in love with St James' Church as soon as he saw it.  He knew nothing of its history but sensed it was a very special place, and that he wanted to help it.


On 2 July 2011 Dickie did a tandem parachute jump to raise funds to help us improve the interpretation of the church for visitors.

Dickie raised over £6,000 in sponsorship!  Dickie is seen above (left) presenting a cheque to the Friends of St James' Church.  Well done Dickie, and thank you!
