Church finds friends

By a County Press reporter

A NEW group has been formed to safeguard the future of Carisbrooke’s 1,000-year-old church, St Mary’s.

The Friends of Carisbrooke Church hopes to raise long-term funds to enable conservation, repair, restoration and improvements to be made.

Peter Ednay, churchwarden, said: "St Mary’s Church has been making a contribution to the life and soul of the village for more than 1,000 years.

"The increasing costs of repairing and conserving the building has led to the formation of the Friends to ensure church buildings will be part of the village scene for years to come."
