Bombed during World War II, St George’s Garrison Church survives as an evocative ruin with recently conserved mosaics, and a modern canopy roof, now available for all to enjoy.


Painting the gates

56 Squadron ATC cadets (Lees Trophy Winners for 2015) helped with painting the doors at St George's

Our temporary west end gates were given a much need face-lift with the award-winning cadets from 56 Squadron and a number of other volunteers coming to the rescue to assist with their painting. We are also grateful to all who came along to help. The new logo and design were then added, helping to make St George's instantly identifiable for local people and new visitors to the Church. Funding is being sought to pay for new permanent doors.
