This website has been produced by two local organisations, both of which exist to celebrate George Herbert and his association with the parish of Bemerton. We welcome enquiries about and support for our activities.
The Friends of St. Andrew's
The Friends of St. Andrew's have two responsibilities devolved to them by the Parish of Bemerton:
- To promote the memory and the works of George Herbert, and
- To maintain and repair St. Andrew's church.
The church dates back to at least the 14th century and ongoing repair work is always required. Our aim is to keep the church open every day and in good repair so it is available for lovers of the poetry of George Herbert and pilgrims to visit.
If you would like further information, or are interested in helping us with our work, please contact us at email@example.com. More details, including how to make regular or one-off donations towards the upkeep of the church, can be found here.
The George Herbert in Bemerton Group
The George Herbert in Bemerton Group is an informal grouping of local enthusiasts for the life and works of George Herbert. The purpose of the Group is to promote and celebrate George Herbert and his works in Bemerton and Salisbury and all are welcome, whatever their faith (or lack of it).
We meet regularly and organise a number of events over the summer months each year. If you would like more details, or feel you might be interested in contributing to our programme, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a small number of items available for sale through our Gift Shop, including some publications produced by the George Herbert in Bemerton Group.
