LETTER TO MEMBERS, 22.9.23
Preparation for our next booklet, “A Guide to Shropshire’s Churches’ will start next year.
Before we can plan for that, we will need to collect your subscription so that we have the money to pay for it.
This is the time when Parish Church Councils are setting their budgets, so we ask that you will set aside £60 to cover your membership for 2024, 2025 and 2026.
We must receive your £60 this financial year to ensure your place in the next booklet. The current one has been extremely successful and highly praised.
You will notice that despite inflation and the rising cost of printing, paper and transport, we are only asking the same as for the past several years.
We are dependent on new recruiting new members to keep the costs down, so if you are in contact with other churches in Shropshire or on the borders, please encourage them to join.

Chair, Shropshire Churches Tourism Group
The big news is our new web design. We hope you like it.
We are indebted to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the re-design, and in particular to Jenny Beard, leader of the 'Virtuous Circles' church tourism project and member of Herefordshire Churches Tourism Group. Sadly, Jenny died recently, and will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
Now that our brochure is going to last for three years instead of two, it is important that you keep an eye on your stock, and if you need more, let us know and we will get some delivered to you. We are making a big effort at the moment to get supplies delivered to everyone who needs them, so if we contact you, please get back to us.
