Heritage Lottery Fund Application

The church is in need of quite urgent repairs to the tower, plasterwork, guttering, windows, pulpit and the rood and parclose screens. We are therefore applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund to see if we can get a grant to carry out this work. We initially applied to the HLF fund specifically for Places of Worship, but this fund comes to a close in August, so we are re-applying to the General Fund.

We recently had paint and woodwork conservators look at the pulpit and screens and they will report on what needs doing and approximate costs. The centre section of the rood screen was restored in 1979, but the outer sections and the parclose screens now need urgent attention.

Currently quotations are being put together to send our application to the Heritage Lottery Fund. This all takes a lot of work and a fair amount of time, but hopefully will be ready soon.
