Roof Refurbishment and Roof Appeal

Our main contractor Haydock Slating Ltd started work on 5th May with site preparation including protection of the war memorial and stone paving. The windows have also been protected with translucent plastic sheeting whilst scaffolding and a temporary roof are erected. The metal sheeting on the scaffolding is required by our insurers.You can follow news about the project on our special page here where regular updates will be given.

Although the Roof Appeal has now achieved its £100,000 target, further monies coming into the Appeal will be used to fund urgent work to the tower and the church development project to provide toilet facilities and changed access to the church. So please continue to give what you can - you can continue to do this in church through the Blue Envelopes or securely on line through
