Friends of St Leonard's Church, Hythe, Kent
The Friends of St Leonard’s Church, Hythe, an organisation with charitable status, came into being in 1981 to “promote the care, restoration, preservation, repair, improvement and beautification of the Parish Church and of the fabric, fittings, organ, pianos and other musical instruments, ornaments, furniture, monuments, fixtures, stained glass and documents in the church and belonging to the church”. The Friends is an independent organisation, separate from the Parochial Church Council (PCC) that is legally responsible for the upkeep of St Leonard’s. The PCC can and does, however, appeal to the Friends for help. The Friends’ Executive Committee, elected at the Annual General Meetings, decides whether we should provide assistance for any particular purpose.
