The Friends of St Mary's Church, Newport, Essex

              Supporting St. Mary the Virgin, Newport since 2000


Upgrade to the 'New' churchyard


The project will bring into use for everyone a large area at the back of our churchyard, which is in the middle of the village, unused and in poor condition. It will be an attractive and peaceful place with walkways through trees and central seating and a raised garden. Design and clearance phase 1 are paid for and we are now seeking financial help with the remaining 3 phases
