Friends of St Mary's Church Higham
St Mary’s church took part in this year’s Heritage Open Day on 19 September with the Theme of Edible England. The event was a great success with over 65 people dropping by to hear very interesting talks about farming in Higham and what the medieval nuns in Higham use to grow and eat. There were also slide shows, photographic displays and tours of the lovely church, and the chance to taste some genuine medieval recipes!
The church is no longer used for regular worship and is maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust.
The Friends of St. Mary’s supports the work of the Trust, and works to enhance visitors’ experience of the church, hold fundraising events, organise events for children and adults, and promote the building’s unique appeal.
