Following on from the 2 very well received concerts in church, our next fund raising event will be a Scalextric Night, run by Gary Moult.
He ran a similar event at the Tollerton Event and has agreed to run the Scalextric Cars again as a fund raising event towards the Tower Repairs.
The event will be run in the Church centre on September 21st from 6pm till 11pm.
Tickets are £15 inc supper, available from wardens (Ruth 937 6969 or Norma 937 3814), Gary Moult (07779 328576) or Tollerton Post Office.
Update on progress with Tower Funding
More good news this month – we have received our third grant towards the Tower Repair Fund. The National Churches Trust has awarded us £2,500 to remove the obsolete asbestos flue from the inside of the tower and towards the cost of scaffolding for the tower repairs. We have already been promised £3,500 from Nottingham Historic Churches Trust and we have received a cheque for £1,500 from All Churches Trust, which is the charitable arm of Ecclesiastical Insurance, with whom the church has its insurance policies. This takes our total amount to £9,400, still a long way to go to reach £50,000 necessary to do both the inside and the outside of the tower, as stipulated in our architect’s latest Quinquennial Survey.
