The building we see at the top of the hill, Puttenham Church, is the image we recognise and recall of Puttenham village. Since the 12th century, thus for 900 years, it has been a major element, perhaps the major element, of the village’s identity. But it is also a working building, which from time to time needs significant alteration or improvement to help or extend the way it can be used in the 21st century. Enabling this to take place now preserves the heritage we have been bequeathed, just as in the past others preserved it for us to enjoy now.
The Friends of Puttenham Church (FOPC for short) is an independent secular charity, set up in 2006 and recognised by the Charity Commission. It seeks to preserve the heritage of the church building and support its adaptation to the needs of modern life. In doing this it naturally works with the local ecclesiastical parish, but is fully independent of it. FOPC is concerned with only this one ancient building in Puttenham village.
FOPC’s funds come from members’ annual subscriptions, donations and fundraising events. Gift Aid can be reclaimed on subscriptions and donations by eligible subscribers and donors.
If you would like to participate in helping to make this part of Puttenham’s heritage available to present and future generations, please contact John Hewitson (01483 810431 – firstname.lastname@example.org ) for further information on FOPC activities and membership arrangements.
Puttenham Church of England School is an infant school for 4 – 7 year olds and is set in the heart of the village with a population of just over 100 pupils. For further details on applying for a place at the school contact the school office.

The cemetery which is located on Puttenham Heath Road is maintained primarily for the burial and interment of deceased residents of the parochial parish of Puttenham. Available space is limited and so it is only possible to accept a few burials of those who live outside the village and provided that the families claim close association with Puttenham. The cemetery is closed to all those who cannot claim any association.
