St Andrews

The Churches of St Andrew's Tarvin, and St Peter's Duddon are in need.

It costs a great deal of money to equip and run our churches in order that they are there when members of the parish need them,for a special occasion,or for a sad occasion.

The church is supported financially by those who attend church regularly and by a limited number of others in the community. With the cost of keeping the church buildings in order and maintaining its use for the community it belongs to, this is increasingly too little year on year. The Churches are looking at a financial loss of £20,000 this year.

It may get to a stage where the church will not be able to serve the villages that it is part of, and not be able to maintain its use for those things that the majority of families look for in their local church.

We are asking for you to consider supporting your church in a financial way, either by regular giving or a one off donation, both can be gift aided, adding 20% to your kind gift.

If you would like to be able to use your church in the future, or support an important building in the village, then please consider making a donation, and if you can make a regular monthly one, this can be done by standing order, cheque, a gift aid envelope or by bank transfer.

If you are able to help, please contact our Treasurer, Richard Orfanelli, on or 01829 741189

Thank You.

Adam Friend.

In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
