    Holy Trinity Church Roof

    All the scaffolding came down at the end of June and we can report that the roof is now, as far as we are aware, waterproof. This of course came with a huge cost but needed to be done. We are now applying for grants to see if we can cover more of the cost of £40.000 to pay for it. Last December we received £10,000 from the Muton Trust for which we are extremely grateful; and we hope to be successful this November for a further grant of £8,000. Any kind donations thankfully received! We are about £12,000 short of our target to replenish our much diminished funds.. IF the sale of St Nicholas goes without a hitch then the PCC has agreed to make up the shortfall from the sale proceeds.
