The Friends of St. Peter’s organisation, formed in 1995, works tirelessly to fund projects to maintain and improve the building. Its membership is drawn both from within the congregation and from the wider community and is supported by many of the villagers of Thornton. 

Look out for the many forthcoming fund raising events planned in the village this year, which include St Georges Day Celebrations on 26th April, Platinum Jubilee celebrations 6th June, Quiz night 9th July, Open Gardens on 10th July, Scarecrow Festival and last night of the Proms 10th September, Craft Fayre on 19th November and a Christmas tree Festival in December.

If you are interested in the St George’s Day celebration don’t leave it too long to book, tickets are limited. Contact Eric Roberts to secure your place.

If you would like to support the valuable work the ‘friends’ do for our wonderful church then please consider becoming a ‘friend’ yourself by donating £5 a year to this very worthy cause.

If you would like to offer assistance or be involved in any way with any of these events or would like more information please contact Churchwarden: Shirley Garlick – churchwarden.thornton@gmail.com or phone 01530230422
