Roof Repairs at Holy Trinity Church

Many of you will have seen scaffolding going up around the church over the last couple of weeks. This is essential for doing repair work to the roof.

There are several areas which need attention from replacing tiles to rotting timbers and drain pipes.  Also some of the higher level windows need some attention.  We have witnessed rain coming into the church over recent weeks and it is essential that we get this work complete before the winter.  The ongoing work of church maintenance is essential, and while the major part of the roof is sound, we must try our best to keep on top of necessary repairs. We are hugely thankful to Churchwarden Cyril for the incredible amount of hours he spends dealing with builders and scaffolders.  A special thanks to Russell from White and Sons Builders who has become a great friend to the church and is the site Forman.

Any works to a grade two star listed building is very expensive and we are not just allowed to replace materials with modern cheaper products.  The Diocesan Advisory Committee via the church architect Daniel Cantrell has to approve all materials before they are used and must be, as far as possible, like for like.
Canon Andrew is pictured standing by a rotten section of roof and holding a broken slate. One of several areas that need attention.

Our invoice for this work has been estimated in the region of ten thousand pounds.  We are going to try and get some grant aid but nothing is guaranteed.  Therefore if anyone of our very generous and faithful congregation, or indeed anyone, who loves our beautiful church within our community and beyond felt able to make a donation towards this work we would be very grateful indeed.  Please either call Canon Andrew 01305 760354 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or speak to our treasurer Philip Wise 01305 759484 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

    The Diocese of Salisbury has been declared the first Eco Diocese. In a first for the Church of England, the Diocese of Salisbury has been granted Eco Diocese Status.

    Andy Atkins, CEO of A Rocha UK the Christian based environmental charity which runs the green award scheme said: “Salisbury is the first diocese to be awarded Eco Diocese status and it's our very great pleasure to do so. When we launched Eco Church in 2016 we had high hopes and expectations. To have got this far so quickly is humbling, exciting and such a huge encouragement that so many churches in a diocese are working together to care for God's earth should be an encouragement to us all.”
