The Churchwardens and Friends of St Peter's Bridge are delighted to announce that we have finally raised our target sum of £90,000 to repair the west wall and stonework repairs, we plan to start the work this summer.

We are very grateful to all who have donated money, joined our Friends group (FOSP), arranged concerts and the many other fund-raising events.  We are also grateful for the generous grants from The Friends of Kent Churches, Canterbury City Council, Kent County Council, All Churches Trust, Marshall's Trust, De Haan Trust and the National Churches Trust for their donations to help fund this work.

We continue to raise funds through our Friends Group and with our Coffee, Cake and Concert mornings, held each month on a Saturday morning.

Our Benefice supports the Friends of Kent Churches, their website is:  www.friendsofkentchurches.co.uk
