St Mildred's Church

St Mildred’s Church at Whippingham is in desperate need of a new heating system to replace their old and broken one – which is now beyond economic repair. To achieve their aim, the Church Council, Friends Association and parishioners are pursuing a range of fundraising activities including; second-hand book sales, coffee mornings and evening Concerts to raise the required funds. 
On Saturday 11th April the Priory School at Whippingham very kindly allowed the use of their School Hall for a Concert performance by the Isle of Wight Scottish Fiddlers. The result was a packed Hall and many positive comments in respect of the entertainment provided. During the half time interval Friends of the Church provided teas, coffees and traditional Scottish shortbread, and the proceeds raised by this, the ticket sales and a raffle resulted in almost £300 being added towards the Heating Fund. Many thanks go out to everyone who helped in making this a very successful and enjoyable evening.
