St Mary's Church - another theft of roof lead
During the night of Thursday 9th and Friday 10th August more lead was stolen from the roof of St Mary's Church. This time the porch area (North side) was targeted. It follows the theft from the south side of the church earlier this year. If you have any information please contact Ros Atchinson (01788 890777).
St Mary's Church is now aiming to raise £30,000 to replace the two sections of roof with terne-coated steel instead of lead. Whilst the colourful tarpaulins are valiantly trying to keep the rain out we need to replace the roof as soon as possible. Please help us to preserve this grade II* listed building.
