Friends of Leeds & Broomfield Churches
The Friends of Leeds and Broomfield Churches are a group of people,
who are concerned that their local churches, as integral architectural
features of their villages, should be preserved from dilapidation and
The Friends were founded in 1999 and have approx 100 members. Each
pay a small annual subscription which forms part of a small contribution
to help keep these ancient buildings maintained.
A series of fund-raising events are often held to raise much needed
funds. These have included Safari Suppers which are held in various
houses around the villages, Barn Dances, Garden Parties (with a
for the best-made scarecrow), Auctions and even formal dinners held at
Leeds Castle which features entertainment by the Cameo Opera Singers.
Overall many hundreds of pounds have been raised since the Friends
started in 1999.
