We are pleased to say that All Saints has been downgraded from Category C (Slow decay; no solution agreed) to Category D (Slow decay; solution agreed but not yet implemented). This is a result of the hard work of the volunteers who put together the All Saints Restoration Project so that there is now a plan to halt the building’s decline. It is only the first step towards our long term aim of securing the future of All Saints and ensuring it is no longer classed as ‘At Risk’ but it is nice to see progress after two years of work on the project!
Once again huge thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund for supporting our Development Phase. There have been numerous necessary investigations and surveys, as well as professional fees, to pay for and the repair Grants for Places of Worship Scheme was absolutely vital in enabling us to afford them all.
