Food Bank

In addition to the box in St Augustine's there are also boxes in Costcutter, Skirlaugh and outside 6 Old Forge Way in which you can place items for the Food Bank - but cans and packets of food only. Please help if you can.

They will especially welcome sponge pudding, pasta sauce, UHT fruit juice, tinned fruit, tinned tomatoes and tinned meat . They have plenty of baked beans and soup.


With the suspension of services and fund-raising events, your Parish Church will feel the strain financially. If you would like to contribute you can do so online here. Please mark your contribution with CV19 and the village church you wish to contribute to (if required) and the funds will be distributed accordingly.

Alternatively for St Augustine's, cash or cheques (payable to "St Augustine's, Skirlaugh") can be posted in envelopes through Church Cottage door. Thank You!
