  • Preserving Our Past

    The churchyard of St Thomas a'Beckett, and its Chapel-of-Ease at Felliscliffe hold within them a wealth of local heritage via their Memorial Inscriptions and Burial Records. Why so many infant deaths, what was happening in society at the time of burial, was there a war or an illness affecting the population? How many local families are represented there and are there any well known names - or not so well known but with an interesting story attached? Is the design of the Memorial interesting in terms of its art work or the language used?This section of our website aims to list photographs of all Memorials, together with their Inscriptions and Church Records so that such questions may be answered by browsing or searching both now and in the foreseeable future - even long after some inscriptions may have faded beyond readability.

Plunkett Foundation Call to Action - Rural Co-operatives' Programme


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) are supporting the Plunkett Foundation Call to Action promoting the positive role parishes have to play in the Rural Co-operatives’ Programme.

Further to this NALC and Plunkett have asked us to send our member councils and parish meetings the attached flyer which summarises the benefits of setting up a community co-operative, the potential for them to address the challenges local communities are facing and the fully-funded support available from Plunkett.  Local councils have a hugely vital role as local enablers in largely rural areas to help establish such community co-operatives – at a time when arguably the creation of such vital building blocks as key units of local rural economic development are needed now more than ever.

Plunkett is a national charity that helps communities across the UK to set up and run community co-operatives; enterprises that are owned and run democratically by large numbers of people in their community – so, working in partnership with NALC, it is well placed to help parishes in the creation of such enterprise models.  Plunkett’s 2015-17 strategy aims to build on its achievements to date, and inspire an even larger movement of people who solve their challenges by running community co-operatives.

To find out how to start up a community co-operative and to get involved in the regeneration of local economies in their areas local councils can contact the Plunkett Helpline on 01993 810 730 or email info@plunkett.co.uk to receive free, initial advice and find out how Plunkett can support them.
