Annual Meeting November 2021

On a chilly autumn evening at the Wells Museum, the Somerset Churches Trust held its Annual Meeting followed by a lecture on the subject of Romanesque Churches in Somerset.  This was a particularly special opportunity for members and trustees to meet as no such meeting had been possible in 2020 owing to covid restrictions. This was well attended and members were brought up to date on the activities of the Trust over the last year. Thank you to everyone who attended and for the positive and helpful comments which were made.

The Annual Meeting was very well attended and the Newsletter compiled by Chair Axel Palmer is available to read here. 

Treasurer Tony Davies reported on the trust’s finances. Click here to read the Annual Report and Accounts for the Year Ending 30 June 2021.

2021: Time to Celebrate our Silver Jubilee

Can it really be 25 years ago since the trust was founded? Well, yes, it will be on 25th April 2021.

This provides a perfect opportunity to recognise that the trust was founded to meet specific issues – these are still with us and, with the world in a very different place, keeping ‘Somerset’s churches and chapels alive’ is a real challenge. After a quarter of a century and raising and distributing over £800,000, Somerset Churches Trust is even more relevant.

We will celebrate our past contributions and look forward to the next decades. Let us be educators, enlighteners and generous benefactors while at the same time having fun!
