The Barn Regeneration Steering Group (BRSG) was set up when the Haydon Trust properties on High Street (next to the Bay Horse Inn) were sold to the Vicarage land developers and it became clear money would be available to improve The Barn.

Not wanting this opportunity to be wasted, Tim volunteered to co-ordinate a group to find information and advise the Haydon Trust and the Church Council. These bodies would make decisions based on the advise given to them by the BRSG.

The Haydon Trust assets have since been transfered to the PCC, so the BRSG advises them and the Church Council make the decisions.

If you think you have skills that would help bring this project fruition please contact us.

A big thank you to all BRSG members (both past and present), to those who give their time to help with fundraising and to those who support and give in many other ways. Help keep the project moving forward.

Thank You.
