Friends of St Botolph's.











"We shall have this day only once; before it is gone, help us to do all the good we can,so that today is not a wasted day." Stephen Grellet.

"The Friends ..." are people who choose to support the work of preserving and maintaining our Church and its surrounds and there are currently around 120 Friends drawn from a wide cross section of our community.

We are a charitable trust which raises funds from membership subscriptions, donations, sponsorships, legacies and a diverse range of activities which are open to everyone.

Money raised is used solely to keep this iconic building in good condition for the daily enjoyment and appreciation of everyone, whether churchgoer or not, and for all those times when the Church is what we do need.

In recent years, "The Friends.." have raised tens of thousands of pounds and with this money a great many repairs and improvements have been made possible that otherwise may not have been done.

You do not have to be a churchgoer or even to have a faith but by becoming a "Friend.." you will have the satisfaction of contributing to the very worthwhile task of preserving an important part of our local heritage.

You will also have lots of fun much of village life is involved with concerts, tractor rallies, and lots more.

You will receive regular newsletters, invitations to events ( for which there is a discount for "Friends...") and there are no other commitments.

All are welcome to all their events, but if you would like to join FOSB
contact Peter Coe 01485-600337, Roger Haywood 01553-630301 or Christine Moore 01485-600659.

You can become a "Friend.." for as little as £5 per person a year - or more if you can - by contacting Christine Moore, Field House, Gayton Road, Grimston PE32 1BG. There are also forms available in Church with details of standing orders and the  "Gift Aid" scheme.

If you would like to make a donation, sponsor an event or discuss leaving a legacy then please contact Roger Haywood on 01553 630301 or email:


The Tractor Rally is a great favourite when crowds gather in the village to watch a parade of vintage tractors. There are loads of other fun things with stalls, raffles, a bar & BBQ, strawberries and a band. See more photo's from 2014/15 on our album  and pictures from the 2016 Tractor Rally are click here.

This year's Rally is on Sunday June 18th 2017  and further details of this and all FOSB events can be found by clicking here.
