FOMA – Friends of Malmesbury Abbey

25 November 2010 No Comment
Established on St Aldhelm’s Day, May 25th 1945, the Friends of Malmesbury Abbey exist to ‘promote the restoration, upkeep and improvement of the fabric of Malmesbury Abbey, its furniture, ornaments and contents…for the improvement and beautification of the buildings or the services therein.’

Under the leadership of the then vicar, Rev Arthur Beaghen, and in the years since, they have worked continuously providing support, raising funds, managing repair projects, producing booklets about the Abbey, its history and the people associated with it, and organising social events for members, including trips to great English Cathedrals and Abbeys. FOMA are currently working with the Abbey PCC and the Diocese of Bristol to install new display cabinets in the north and south aisles of the Abbey for significant ancient artifacts, bibles and manuscripts.
FOMA plan to continue to co-operate with the vicar, the church council, and all good friends of the Abbey to preserve and enhance the building and its services for the benefit of this present generation and those to come. If you visit the Abbey please take a look at “The Friends” notice board which is on the right just beyond the stewards’ desk.
If you would like to become a friend please e-mail Miranda Ford.
