BART Women’s Fellowshipwomen

The speaker at the next meeting of BART Women’s Fellowship in Ryarsh Church Hall, at 2.00pm on Thursday, April 5th, will be Mrs Mary Gibbins, the Chairman of ‘Friends of Kent Churches’.


‘Friends of Kent Churches’ was founded in 1949, in response to the poor state of repair of Kent’s churches at that time.  The organization is dedicated to preserving Kent’s churches and helping maintain them in good condition.  In the past ten years, through their fund- raising Ride & Stride and generous legacies and donations, Kent’s churches have benefited by over £2 million pounds
