We, as a community, saved Our Shop and Post Office from closure in 2011 and some four years later went on to face another real challenge. Following a Quinquennial Inspection, it was discovered our historic, and much - loved church was at risk. The tower was dangerous with pieces of stonework threatening to fall awayand there was a real threat that, if work was not carried out, the might have to close. With a the help of a Heritage Lottery grant and genrous donations, work began to repair the damage. and carry out urgent maintenace in 2016/17.

At the same time a small group of people from the village established a long - term program of fundraising and set up Our Church Hinton St. George Building Trust. The aim of the Trust is to establish an endowment to ensure the building and envirins of the Our Churchare preserved for the community and that it will be there for the generations that follow. The Trust supports the Parochial Church Council (PCC) which has full responsibility for the Church building. The Trustees of the Trust will consider any request from the PCC for support to repair or maintain the structure, environs and fabric of the Church but is not involved in funding or supporting the day to day running of the Church.

The endowment is made up of donations, Friends' subscriptions and fundraising events/activities that take place throughout the year. For further information as how to become a 'Friend' please click the link above.

Special cards have been kindly nproduced from a painting by Simon Casson. Cards are for sale in Our Church, Our Shop and Dorthy's Tea Room @£1.95. The original painting was quickly purchased by a village resident and a generous donation was made by the artist to the Trsu. A second version of the original painting is exhibited in the Church and is illustrated below. We hope that we find a purchaser for this painting known as 'The Church Hinton St. george !!'. The artist will then make a further donation to the TRust. Our thanks go to Simon and Sheridan Casson.

We hope that anyone visiting this site will be willing to support the preservation of one of the great features of our village.
