The Friends of the Mellor Parish Centre is a group that exists to raise funds for the upkeep of the Centre. We do this by charging a modest yearly subscription to all our members and by putting on a variety of events throughout the year, open to all. Would you consider becoming a Friend?
The costs of running the centre and maintaining it in good condition are enormous, so the funds raised by subscriptions and the entertainments arranged by the Friends committee are a vital source of revenue. Events enjoyed by the local community in the past few years have included the very popular Opera Galas, themed even talks on various topics such as mountaineering, gardening and garden birds. Around £8,000 was raised in 2014 from a hugely varied calendar of events, namely Bridge Drives, talks, an evening of Opera and Champagne, Textile Journeys (a day of speakers and workshops), a Latin-American Evening (a home-cooked 3-course meal and a demonstration of tango dancing) and a Christmas Concert. Something for everyone. The Friends also support other fund-raising events such as the wonderful Mellor Open Gardens and the Mellor Archaeological Dig weekends. See below for our upcoming events.
