If you live locally you will have seen the photographs appearing around the villages showing the poor condition of the church. Walking or driving past the church every day it is easy to assume it will be there forever but sadly this might not be the case. The roofs are no longer watertight, more slates could slip at any time and the leaking roofs have led to devastating internal damage as the stone carvings simply crumble away.
Today we have launched a Sponsor A Slate appeal to help raise enough money to repair the roofs and protect the heritage within for generations to come. Sponsor forms are available here, inside the church or from any PCC member. Please give what you can to support this wonderful building.
We will also be holding an Open Day at the church on Saturday 13th June from 10:30am. The monthly Coffee Morning will also be held in the church that day. You can find out about what the project will involve, what we have discovered so far and let us know what else you'd like to see. There will be activities for children and you can try out the first version of our new Family Trail.
Please take just 5 minutes to look inside the church - you will soon see why this project is so very necessary.
Our thanks again to the Heritage Lottery Fund. Without their support we would never have been able to carry out the investigations to get the project to this stage.
