Community Centre (The Old School) Long Melford Old School
2010 marked the 150th Anniversary of the Old School building being used as a Primary school for local children. When the new village school was built in the early 1980s the Old School building became available for purchase and with some financial backing from The Parish Council, a huge community money raising project was instigated and the Community Council was formed (later becoming the Community Association) and the school building was saved and purchased for the use and benefit of all villagers.

Friends of Long Melford Church Building Trust
7 Clopton Drive, Long Melford, Suffolk, CO10 9LJ.
Tel: Mr R.V. Michette (Hon. Secretary) 01787 377 164


The Friends of Long Melford Church Building Trust has been established to fund works to maintain and improve the dignity of the building of Holy Trinity Church, Long Melford. Work on the building is funded through two main channels; the Church Restoration Fund, administered by the Parochial Church Council (part of the Church hierarchy), and the Friends.
The Church of England itself does not fund maintenance work, which is the responsibility of the local community. The Friends Trust works alongside but independently of the Church Council and raises funds for projects which are beyond the routine of the Restoration Fund.
