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.
