Church Stonework & Repointing

We are exploring whether the church could be put on the heritage "at risk" register, an official acknowledgement that the church needs repairs so that it does not deteriorate.

All donations are still "gratefully received". There is still a need to prioritize the most urgent work. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support . . .
