Following our successful application for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, work on the Nave roof is now well advanced. The original roof timbers were found to be in good condition apart from two rafters which required some rotted timber to be removed and new oak scarfed into place. Internal works to remove some pews, repair the floor and install a display of church history are well advanced but are now waiting for the internal support scaffolding to be removed.
The majority of the finance has been provided by the Heritage Lottery Fund with supporting grants from the Allchurches Trust and St Andrews Restoration Appeal (SARA). This appeal has been running for five years and has raised over £27000 to date – donations always welcome!
