St. Peter’s Church Roof Fund

Thank you to all who have supported the Church Roof Fund so far, we have raised 2 thirds of the money already. Harry’s Concert (see ‘Events’ part of this newsletter) will be to officially launch the Roof Fund, raising money for one last push. We have one Grant of £1,000 from the church repair fund and hope to re-apply to the National Churches Trust in the new year.  The part of the roof that needs to be replaced are the failing copper nails, plus a new membrane to replace the old felt. We have costed for replacing 10% of tiles in the process. (Joan Kearsley). Contact Joan 280337 for further information.
