On 17 June 2020 we were awarded a lottery grant to start restoring the Church, including cleaning the medieval pulpit (carved from a single piece of oak). We will also clear a few pews from the back of the Church, and install a toilet under the tower, to enable us to hold all the community events planned for the future. These will include more concerts, open days, bird and bat walks, a regular Mummers’ play and young people’s events.
Church Restoration update.
St Sylvester's Church will be closed from the 4th January 2021, when the contractors will begin the Restoration.
More news when Covid allows us to begin our programme of activities.
