Secret Auction: 9 special glasses for 900 years

When they’re gone, they’re gone!

We have nine glasses celebrating the story of St Mary’s Church in Denham.  Each one bears the inscription “St Mary’s Church, Denham Village. Founded 1123”. They are the remaining glasses that were made for a special celebration many years ago. When they are gone, they are gone! As we celebrate 900 years of St Mary’s at this year’s festival, you can own one of these glasses…

Bid for one of them in our Secret Auction

You can submit a bid to own one of them. The top nine bidders will each own a special memory of our historic church. This is a secret auction. You can submit your bid until the end of Thursday, 14 September. The winners will be notified by email. 

Every penny given in this secret auction will help us look after St Mary’s Church and churchyard. Thank you for your generosity!

Place your bid here…

“We bought these glasses in Peter Crick’s time [who was Rector of St Mary’s in the 70s and 80s] to sell on the church stall at the May Fayre.We had two batches made (100 in each I think) and we sold them for £5 for 6. They are good sturdy glasses. I use one regularly, particularly when BBQing in the garden. My daughters reminded me that in the 80’s at home we treated them as our best glasses brought out on special occasions!” Gerald Miller (who was our church’s treasurer for many years)
