Shalfleet Church continues to thrive thanks to its hardworking team of dedicated volunteers. The PCC is made up of friends of the church who help to keep everything running smoothly in the background, help care for the beautiful Grade 1 listed building and its churchyard, and make sure that services run smoothly. We are also grateful to those who have stepped down from the PCC but continue to help out with the setting up for services, organising the flowers and ringing the bells.
The churchwarden, Nick, lives in Ningwood with his wife Claire and is available to help out with queries, usually knowing who to approach when something special has to be done, for example for weddings, christenings and funerals.
Henry, or M'lud as we call him, has lived in Shalfleet for ever and a day and brings his razor sharp legal mind and enthusiasm for tractors to the running of the church. He is our other churchwarden and wields a nifty spade while keeping the churchyard in order.
Pamela is our wonderful organist, who serenades us before and after services and keeps the choir in tune during the services.
Steve is our treasurer, and keeps us on the straight and narrow when it comes to paying the bills.
Michael is a tireless champion of village life and in his role as Treasurer of our Hall sub-committee, helps to keep the Hall at the centre of so much of what goes on in the village. With his amazing team of volunteers (led by Catherine, ably assisted by Brian, Clare and Sue), he helps mastermind the annual fete and ensures that the Hall is available throughout the year, rain or shine.
Jane brings a wonderful sense of calm and common sense to the team, with a particular focus on the environment.
Rhod is Treasurer of our Fabric Trust and chairman of the Friends of Shalfleet Church. He is regularly to be seen rallying the troops in the churchyard, cutting and sweeping and generally keeping things in order.
Prue is our long-suffering secretary, looking after both the PCC and the Fabric Trust, and we could not survive without her. She keeps the minutes and tactfully steers us through the paperwork and administration with the patience of a saint.
