WISHING YOU A VERY HAPPY EASTER 2017 Thank you to those of you who supported us at our fascinating talk on the calendar and colours of the Church Year.  We raised a tremendous £200 for the evening.  All proceeds to the re-shingling of the spire.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT OUR PIMMS TENT AT THE VILLAGE FETE ON SUNDAY JUNE 4TH! *   *   *   *   * NEW YEAR MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN 2017 and update on the Shingles

Dear Friends and all who support us,

Let me begin by wishing you all a very Happy New Year.  In the paragraphs below, I have set out our current position and our plans for 2017.

Over the course of almost 6 years, FOWC has raised an outstanding £27,500 with 2016 being particularly successful due to some very generous donations, specifically towards the spire.

Therefore, considerable progress has been made in enabling the Parochial Church Council (PCC) meet its funding requirements to initiate the ‘Re-shingling of the Spire’.  At the end of 2016, the Board of Trustees met with the Chair of the PCC Building Committee to receive an update on progress and to conduct due diligence of funding use on behalf of all those who have so generously donated towards this project to date.  FOWC has already committed £10,000 to the project but is now in a position to potentially offer much more; the final amount will depend on project planning and further due diligence to ensure success.  With the Spire being the main effort for the PCC Building Committee and FOWC, by working hard together, we hope that the project may be completed in 2017 and I will update you through the website on project timings as they become known.

I have formally called on Reverend Nick Williams and have briefed him on our work to date.  I will be meeting again with him in the early months of 2017 to discuss the work of FOWC; as you would expect, he is extremely keen to support our work.

Looking ahead to the 2017 diary, we look forward to continuing our momentum in raising funds and supporting the Spire and future projects.  The dates for events in 2017 are:

11 March     Trustees’ Spire Project Update Meeting

25 March    Membership Drive and ‘Talk One’

04 June       Pimm’s Tent – Village Fete

07 July        AGM

10 Sept        Strawberry Tea Party – Manor Farm

30 Sept       Trustees’ Meeting

11 Oct          ’Talk Two’

25 Nov        Church Christmas Bazaar

You wil rweqwdpa. breitling chronomat evolution c13356l note that we are planning to continue the talks in this our 7th year of operation.  If you know of anyone who you think might be a good speaker and would be prepared to speak for an hour on a topic of interest, then I would ask that you contact the Secretary.

I have set a new target of £30,000 to be achieved by the end of FY17/18, and we look forward to your continued support in 2017.

Lastly, I offer FOWC’s sincere thanks to Mr and Mrs Mark English for the use of Manor Farm for meetings and the gardens for the Strawberry Tea Party – we hugely appreciate their continuing support.

Once again, Happy New Year,

Warmest regards,

William English

Chairman FOWC

 

*       *       *       *        * SPONSOR-A-SHINGLE! After many years of being baked by the sun and battered by the elements, the wooden shingles on the Church spire have finally perished and are in urgent need of replacement.   All 14,000 of them.  Before it is too late.

It is hoped that work could start on the spire next Spring – depending on funding. It could cost as much as @£70,000 for oak shingles. FOWC has pledged at least £10,000 towards the cost of the re-shingling…

FOWC is offering you a unique opportunity! For only £1 per shingle, you can sponsor a shingle – or as many as you would like – and we will put your name in a special Commemorative Book which will be kept as part of the village’s legacy. If you would like to sponsor a shingle and be part of this generational legacy project, please email friends@ or telephone FOWC Secretary Frances English on 01622 812471.  Alternatively, look out for us at village events,

Thank you to all of those who have already sponsored a shingle.  Your donations are very much appreciated!

Strawberry Tea Party

Once again, we would like to thank those of you who supported us at our annual Strawberry Tea Party back in September.  We couldn’t have been luckier – the weather was just perfect for an afternoon in an English country garden. Walking through the Yard, admiring the stunning vintage cars parked alongside, then sipping Pimm’s, indulging in Strawberries and Cream, tea and cakes and splashing out on the White Elephant and children’s Lucky Dip whilst playing croquet, badminton or simply lounging on the lawn – perfect!  Including our collection for the Shingles, we took an astonishing £1300! Thank you to everyone who gave their support to this event.

David Wilson-Green cycling up Mont Ventoux! Many congratulations to David Wilson-Green in his amazing cycling challenges he undertook for FOWC during the summer, culminating in his tremendous ascent of the notorious Mont Ventoux! David raised a tremendous £1537 towards the re-shingling of the spire! Thank you, David!

THANK YOU!

FOWC would like to thank everyone who joined us at our Pimm’s tent at the Wateringbury Fete.  It was a beautiful day and was a great success all round.  Thanks to you we raised a whopping £520.02 profit!

Our target of £15,000 by March 2016 is growing closer and closer!  Thanks to you we have raised £13,800!

 

 

 

————————–

Over the last four years we have raised a magnificent £13K through individual donations, business donations and fundraising events.  All monies go directly to the maintenance, improvement and preservation of the church and churchyard to promote public interest in the church, its history and its work.

At the end of March, every household in Wateringbury received a membership leaflet through their letterbox.  At only £10 per annum, we ask that you consider taking out a new membership for 2015 or renewing your current membership.  Please help us to continue our improvements for the church and churchyard.  If you haven’t received a leaflet, then please feel free to ring Frances English (Secretary) on 01622 812471 and she will send you one or pick up a leaflet at the church or post office.

Our first completed project has been funding the new internal church door.  Hope you’ll agree it looks great!

Anyone can become a Friend of Wateringbury Church, even if they aren’t churchgoers or even living in the parish. Perhaps you may value the building, its history and traditions, or just feel it’s important for the village to keep the church in good condition. Our overall aim is to assist with the maintenance, improvements and preservation of the church and churchyard, thereby promoting public interest in the church, its history and its work. Join us to help the church maintain its role at the heart of our village. —————————–

Thank you for your support at the Christmas Craft Bazaar!

The sale of chutneys, adult manicures and children’s nail painting and donations raised an excellent sum of £68.50.

It was a very enjoyable day and thank you to all of those who supported us.
