What's on at St Helen's Heritage?  

In the light of government advice, both Church and Heritage Centre are currently closed and we have suspended all Heritage activities for the foreseeable future. 

Online Craft Activities

In the meantime, we have devised some activities for you to be getting on with in the safety of your home during lockdown.

Heraldic Shields

Have you seen our wonderful heraldic shields surrounding the West Door of St Helen’s? Our favourites are the Maunch and the Toads but if you had a coat of arms what would it be? Try making your own using our easy craft sheet as a guide. We've put the instructions on this page, or you can download them here.
We'd love to see your creations so please share them with us on our Facebook and Instagram pages!
