Our latest Annual Review

Our Annual Review for 2023 has now been printed and sent to those on our mailing list, and a digital copy has gone to those for whom we have email contacts.

Do please find time to take a look at what we have been doing.

You will find descriptions and pictures of four of the projects we have supported, together with a full list of the grants we have offered. We hope you will enjoy the pictures, not least the bird’s eye view of the new roof at Painswick, which is on our cover this year.

Apart from Painswick’s roof, there’s an account of an exemplary reordering at Cotham in Bristol, a trio of bell projects in the Leadon Valley, and the conservation of churchyard tombs at Little Barrington.

With fortuitous timing, we have been able in the Annual Review to name our Patron, His Majesty The King. As Prince of Wales, he has been our Patron for many years and has been a great supporter of our work. We are immensely proud and grateful to know that he has chosen to continue his patronage for the future.

We are always grateful for photographs relating to our work, and we would like to thank those whose pictures appear in the 2023 Annual Review:

The photo of Colin Senior on p4 was taken by Marcus Green at St Cyr’s Stonehouse.
The photo on p5 was taken by Andrew Higgins of Thousand Word Media.
The photo of Bledington on p7 is by Rodrigo de la Garza.
The photo of Painswick on p8 was taken by Dylan Davies, churchwarden.
The photos of Cotham, pp10/11, were supplied by the parish.
