PROJECT RESTORATION: ST. GILES HOUSE
2011 - ONGOING
In Jan 2011 we started an exciting restoration project of St.Giles House and Park that will help secure its future as a family home and a venue for a whole range of activities. We are looking to build a network of friends, supporters and interested parties who can help us achieve this vision and share this journey with us. If you are interested in becoming a 'friend of St.Giles' please leave us your email here and we will be in touch shortly:
Otherwise please have a look around and don't hesitate to contact us with any enquiries.Many thanks,
