Fradswell Village Hall
'A vibrant community hub at the heart of Fradswell, providing local opportunities to meet, socialise, learn, share & shop,
A model for rural community engagement'
We want to provide opportunities, facilities and services within the community to reduce isolation and the need to travel.
Our community has been here for generations. In all we do we strive to ensure it is here for generations to come.
We want to engage every part of our community, recognising the threat of rural isolation, especially being aware of the need to involve the young and the elderly.
We aim to provide opportunities that truly enable people, through teaching new skills and encouraging enterprise
Whatever we seek to do in the future we should always be proud of and embrace our tradition
Fradwell was first mentioned as part of the Colwich parish in the Domesday Book, where it is listed as Frodawelle or Frodeswelle, and it is likely to have been an Anglian settlement established during the Dark Ages.
The village received a church of its own in the 13th century, when the Chapel of Saint James The Less was established. The chancel survives, but the main part of the church was rebuilt in 1764. Fradswell became a parish in its own right in February 1851 (it has since become the Milwich with Fradswell Parish), and further refurbishment, including the building of a new nave and the installation of stained glass by William Wailes, followed soon after.
St James the Less, Fradswell
The Bishop of Lichfield is walking the Mid Trent Benefice over the weekend of 8th and 9th February. He will be visiting all 10 Churches.
He will be walking from Stowe to Fradswell across the fields on Sunday 9th, and will arrive at Fradswell at 3:30pm and will stay until 4pm. It would be wonderful if as many people as possible could join us at Fradswell, or indeed, during any part of the weekend.
If you were married, baptized or confirmed at Fradswell, or if you have a service booked at Fradswell, this is an opportunity to show Bishop Michael, and the Mid Trent Team that St James the Less is a vibrant and thriving Church.
