Friends of Sedlescombe Parish Church Heritage Trust

Are you a Friend of Sedlescombe church?   

This is a charitable trust established by the late Beryl Lucey who lived in Asselton House from 1947-2000, she was very interested in the history of the village and wrote the book “Twenty centuries of Sedlescombe.”

The Trust was set up to assist in the maintenance and restoration of our beautiful 13th century parish church and churchyard.
In 2015 £ 45,000 was donated from the Trust to the Parish Church to assist in the upgrade of heating for the comfort of users.

Anyone in the community is welcome to join for the nominal fee of £5, plus £2.50 for each additional member at the same address. There is no emphasis on faith, just the desire to see this important village building preserved and maintained. 

Several fundraising and social events are held throughout the year including members only events as well as dances, music nights, quizzes and the annual jumble sale!

If you would like further details and /or a membership form please contact the membership secretary Pauline Williams on 01424 870412
