On Easter Sunday we were reminded that the church was colder inside than when we concluded the service outside in the churchyard ─ even in early April!

Our new heating system is an absolute MUST. Wouldn't it be perfect if we had it fitted during the summer months in readiness for when temperatures fall once more? We are just SIXTEEN THOUSAND pounds away from being able to instruct work to begin. So please, if you have been meaning to add your name to the list of supporters who have donated £1,000 (or in some cases more) then please can we encourage you to do it now?

In fact any amount that you feel able to give will quickly get us to the point where we can instruct work to begin. Every limited edition print of the churchyard or pack of notelets purchased will help us to raise these final thousands. So many people have done so much to get us to this point - for which a huge thank you ─ one last push on this particular project will see our church warm and welcoming once more.

Thank you everyone, together we CAN do this.

Donations to the appeal in the form of cheques should be made payable to St Mary the Virgin PCC Higham 600 Appeal, or can be made using the BACS system (sort code 30-96-09; account number 84427260; account St Mary the Virgin PCC Higham 600 Appeal). Be assured that whatever you can raise, in whatever format, will be very gratefully received ... thank you!

Here is a helpful way to raise funds for St Mary’s Church and 600 Appeal!

Most of us are now doing online shopping in which case 'easyfundraising' can help us all raise much needed funds for our Church and Appeal at no cost to us at all!

Three easy steps and you can start raising funds for our church’s general funds as soon as you begin to shop:

1. Go into the App store on your phone/iPad etc and select the easyfundraising app and download it.

2. Use the Search option to find St Mary’s, Higham Ferrers, which you need to select as your cause to support.

3. Select the ‘donation reminder’ option because that will do what it says on the tin and remind you when a retailer is one of the more than 4,000 who will give a % of your sale to our church when you shop.

The important part will be spreading the word and remembering to do it – and please encourage all the young people in your life to do it because they are definitely online shoppers! The more people we can encourage to support us with this the more money our church will receive.

We will give regular updates of how many supporters we have and how much has been raised so please do all you can to help us get ‘money for nothing’ because our church really does need every penny we can get. Thank you everyone!
