Church Charities

Hingham Heritage Fund (Charity No 1071172)

The Covid pandemic continued to have an effect on plans over the past year and Heritage did not feel it was advisable to hold any of our usual events. However, plans are in place for a number of things for the coming year. 

Repairs to the guttering, have been completed and the inspection of the ringing floor should now be in hand. 

We would welcome any new members to our Committee or anyone who would like to help at our events to work alongside our current stalwarts. 

We have monthly cake stalls in Hingham Market Place, on the 4th Saturday of the month, from 8.30am until sold out!
