St Peter’s Markets
Raising funds for the churches of St Peter’s and St Mary’s
The village churches have set up an online market place to fundraise. The aim is to raise funds to help support church activities and maintenance and also providing gardeners with an alternative to discarding their surplus plants by making them available to fellow gardeners in exchange for charitable donations. Go to https://stpetersmarketplace.org/ to find out how you can contribute or email email@example.com
