The Friends of West Mersea Parish Church
A charity set up to keep the historic church in the heart of West Mersea beautiful.
In 2011, the late Col. Jeremy Dumas in his role as Fabric Officer, recognised that unless something was done quickly, the church building of St. Peter & St. Paul in the heart of West Mersea village, could become very difficult to maintain in good order as a central and historical part of West Mersea. He set about gathering together like minded friends who thought that this thousand year old church was worth preserving for future generations and “The Friends of West Mersea Parish Church” registered charity was founded. Since then, the friends have raised AND spent over £100,000 through membership, concerts and events thus enabling many improvement projects to walls, windows, roof, tower and other enhancements.
