11 April 2017 – New Church Recording Project

We are starting a new Church Recording group to record all the treasures, furnishings and artefacts at St Mary with St Alban Church in Ferry Road, Teddington TW11 9NN which is at the river end of the High Street, near Teddington Lock. Several bus routes stop nearby and we may be able to arrange car shares.

Once we get going, probably in September 2017, the group will meet for about 3 hours once a month but it’s very flexible and attendance is of course not needed every month. No experience or expertise is required, just interest and enthusiasm. Training will be provided by NADFAS which will be useful.

We all love Richmond DFAS and we hope that you will consider giving some of your time to this exciting project. It is the only Church Recording project in the London area being undertaken at present.

Please would you email Sue Stevens by Sunday 7th May to tell her whether you are interested in joining the group. Her email address is

It should be fun.
