I have lived in Bishampton for over 45 years and was one of the original 6 trustees of FOSJ retiring after my initial 3 year stint.
St James has been an important part of the fabric and history of our village and I think it essential that it should continue to be so

I have lived in the village since 1985 and have raised 4 children here. I have helped organise talks in the church over the last few years for the Friends and I am keen to ensure that the fabric of the church is maintained for ongoing services and events.

I have lived in the village for a few years and am fortunate enough to have a view of the church from my house. I joined the Friends as I would hate to see our magnificent church fall into disrepair or worse lost to the Village all together.
