Chalfont St. Giles is a picturesque and lovely village. Central to this vibrant village is the beautiful old Church dating from about 1150 which houses wall paintings from the early 14th century, 16th century brasses, a locally made clock and much more. It's a place of worship and community - a place for weddings, baptisms and contemplation.
The Friends help to support the preservation of the fabric of the church, its art and ornaments, environs and heritage.
We were thrilled to welcome one of the world's most celebrated clarinetists to Chalfont St. Giles at the beginning of February. Julian Bliss, accompanied by pianist Robert Bottriell, played a wonderful programme of classical music (Debussy, Messager), jazz (Gershwin), tango (Piazzolla) and more. Thanks to the substantial audience who braved the snow and ice to enjoy the wonderful concert in the lovely acoustic (and warmth!) of the Church.
As many of you will know, the Friends lost a wonderful, dedicated and hard working member with the death of our membership secretary, Beryl Lant, in October. There was a packed church for her memorial service on 22 December with friends and family from far and wide.
Sincere thanks to all those who donated funds in her memory in aid of the Friends. This will be used to support a project dear to her heart.
