'LET THE STONES LIVE’ APPEAL – PHASE 2

We are so very pleased to report more GOOD NEWS to our Appeal for funding our most urgent stonework repairs.

Allchurches Trust has once again responded, splendidly, to our needs and awarded a very generous grant of £3,500 towards the most urgent work and Limoges Trust has also marvellously answered our call for support and sent the wonderful sum of £5,000 to ‘Let the Stones Live’.

We wish to thank both these Charities and also acknowledge the efforts of others who have supported our many fund raising events to continue our efforts to ensure that St George’s is a safe and secure building for everyone.

These incredible gifts mean that repairs can be started straight away to the most damaged parts of the exterior walls of the church.  You should soon see stone masons at work on the East Vestry window and wall and also making the necessary alterations to the gutter to prevent any future erosion into the Vestry itself, good news indeed!

Of course, there is still some way to go to repair all the areas of concern and we welcome your continued support and prayers.

LET THE STONES LIVE' APPEAL - PHASE 2

We begin the next chapter of our  'Let the Stones Live' Appeal with two generous grants amounting to £4,000 towards the cost of repairing some of the most seriously fragile eroded stonework on the exterior church walls.  We want to extend our grateful thanks to The Lord Austin Trust and the GJW Turner Trust for responding so splendidly to our appeal.

Having taken care of the most pressing problems of the roof alterations and repairs plus the replacement of the damaged North Elevation high level stonework last year, we can now turn our attention to other areas of the church building which are causing us great concern.  At present, the interior of the Vestry is most at risk of considerable water ingress because of the condition of the East Vestry window and wall.  We have also begun to worry about the dangerous state of the South Porch, our main door into the church, where falling portions of stonework have appeared on the visitor entry path.  We need to make some of these repairs as soon as possible.

We are making every effort to ensure that St George's is a safe and secure building for everyone; the many regular visitors, our two additional worship groups, our partner churches, local schools, choirs and art groups, charities and many others.   Not least, the special activities such as our dementia cafe (DemCaf),  free lunchtime concerts and the wonderful musical performances by the Baby Opera company..

So, our appeal carries on and we pray for your continued concern and support.
