St Mary’s roof needs repairing.
A sharp intake of breath usually follows that sort of news, especially when the architects have identified work on our Grade II* building that will cost in the region of £200k.
But as is often the case, opportunities hide behind the bald facts.
A bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund will be put together for at least half the amount needed and the Steering Group of the project are looking for one or two students who might find it helpful to their studies or CV to shadow the development of the bid preparation process. Ideally any candidates to do this would be studying a Business Skills or similar course locally over the next 12 months.
More information is available in this press release.
Anyone interested in what is believed to be a unique opportunity should contact the Rector or Churchwardens- details on the Contact page.
