PROJECT WW

The Church Project for 2021-2022 is known as Project WW.

WW stands for "West Wall", and this reflects the aim of the project, which is to raise sufficient funds to pay for repointing and other repairs to the west wall of the church (behind the organ), which is suffering from damage resulting from water creeping in.

The cost is estimated at £15,000, though this may rise when we get to do a closer examination, and the total raised so far is just £3322.32, so although we've now passed the £3000 milestone, we still need to make some significant progress in raising funds!

The fundraising events held so far, and those planned for the future, are shown below. If you:

  • would like to make a contribution as a result of any of the past efforts, or 
  • would like to join in with any of the planned future events, or 
  • have any ideas for other methods of fundraising, 

please contact Bridget Calvert on 01582 527459.

Many thanks to all who have supported the project so far.
