The Friends of St. Marys (FOSM) Exists to support the preservation and restoration of the St. Marys the Virgin, Baldock. The charity looks to support the preservation and restoration of the church building.


The magnificent restoration of the Grade 1 Listed St Mary's church tower was completed in May 2011. However due to emergency extra work on the spire when it was discovered that basically the lead was holding up the rotten beams, we had to take out loans to cover the work to make the spire safe. And without a tower there would be no bells or clock chimes. Any support for Baldock's Parish church via donations to help us pay off the outstanding amount of £19,000.

In addition to finishing paying off the Tower & Spire Restoration, the south aisle roof of the church is leaking and needs urgent repair. We have secured a marvellous grant of £250,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund
if we can raise £80,000 ourselves before the end of the year! Any contribution
you can make is warmly appreciated as we strive to keep this Grade 1 listed
icon of Baldock an important part of people's lives for many generations to
come.

Please feel free to donate to the Charity direct through the pages, or set up a fundraising page for an event. For any advice or support please contact us on fosm-baldock@hotmail.co.uk.

 

Many Thanks
