We are short of £5,000 in funding to complete porch repairs.  The work is necessary because the porch has open joints, water traps, fractured stonework and missing detailing.  The works have been specified by our Church Architect.

The project is to repair the church porch to ensure safe access to the interior of the building and ensure that it can be used for worship and events by the whole community into the future. The concern at this time is twofold - firstly the risk to the fabric with further water ingress and secondly the rate of decay, given that the remaining fabric is in fair to good condition. In summary, the work entails improvements to rainwater disposal; stonework repairs, including stone replacements and re-pointing; roof repairs, including timber repairs.
