Tickets for the special celebration to mark the 20th anniversary of the launch of the Friends of St Edmund’s in Sedgefield, are ‘selling well’, say organisers.

Several founder members of the group will be among those attending a three-course, sit-down dinner in the Parish Hall on Friday, November 15, when music will be provided by the popular Gastric Band. A bar will be available.

Tickets for the event cost £30 and are available from secretary Alison Hodgson on 01740 620912 or membership secretary Brian Mutch on 01740 622302.

The primary role of the Friends is to help with the preservation of the fabric of St Edmund’s Church. Since it was formed in November 1999, members have raised around £160,000 through various social events and visits to regional places of interest.

“We are advising anyone who wishes to join us on this very special occasion to make early application for tickets because places are limited,” said Alison this week.
