Tower Fund Raising Latest
Our Tower Repair Fund continues to go onwards and upwards! We were very fortunate last month and received more grants, including one for £10,000 which gave a great boost to the fund, taking our current total to £21,000.
One of the grants is specifically for removing the asbestos flue from the church tower which will enable us to install access ladders to all floors so that the tower can be inspected regularly for maintenance and repair.
We are also looking at how we can improve the heating at St Peter’s during the winter, especially as we know our gas boilers, which are situated in the tower, are inefficient and cannot last much longer . Another project that requires a considerable sum of money, but with prayer, some expert help and more fund-raising we will get there – if not for this winter then hopefully for 2020.
Ride and Stride
St. Peters will be open all day for those taking part in the annual Ride and Stride event, September 14th.
The annual Ride+Stride for Churches event takes place between 10 am
and 6 pm on 14th September when people raise sponsorship by walking,
cycling, and riding horses, tractors, etc to visit churches across the country. Details of this national event can be found at www.rideandstrideuk.org.
In Notts, the event is organised by Nottinghamshire Historic Churches
Trust, and churches are urged to take part in some way – if only by
being open with a sign-in form for visitors or, better still, by putting
on an event such as a cake sale, history talk, concert etc.
Participating churches can receive 50% of the sponsorship raised by
riders/striders who nominate them, and the other 50% is used by the
Trust to support churches with grants for repair and restoration.
If you would like to take part please contact the Ride+Stride
Administrator for Notts, Margaret Lowe, on 07757 800 919 or
firstname.lastname@example.org, or go to the Trust’s website www.nottshistoricchurchtrust.org.uk.
