We are delighted to announce that the repairs have finally started at All Saints, Newton on Ouse. After several years of planning we were at last able to award the repairs contract to Geoff Neal (Roofing) Ltd and they started preparing the site at the end of last month. The scaffold is now in place and the repairs can begin. We will post more photos and updates as the repairs progress. Thank you to everyone who has supported the project along the way - especially the National Lottery (through the Heritage Lottery Fund), the National Churches Trust, the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust and the AllChurchesTrust as well as everyone who sponsored a slate or came to one of our fundraising events over the last few years. These repairs would not have been possible without you!
Thank you to all those who attended our ‘Sharing Memories’ event at the church last weekend. There was a great turnout of people who either came along to recall their lives in the villages, and the role the church played, or to listen to other people’s stories – or both! We were also treated to a slideshow of images of village life over the years - our thanks to Mick Dean for sharing the slides with us.
We will be adding many of the memories to this website over the next few months so that they can be recorded for future generations. If you have memories you would like to share but were unable to attend please do get in touch.
We are grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for their help in putting on the event.
