Fundraising for St Mary's Church roof update from Rev Chris Childs
Thank you for your incredible response to the news that thieves have removed all the lead from the north aisle roof and half that from the south. The public meeting was attended by 78 people from our community and we were much encouraged by the £4,000 donation from Combs Fete Committee. Since then we have received nearly £6,000 more but we still have a long way to go towards the architect's initial estimate of £100 - £150k. We were insured to the maximum but it falls way short.
Mr Gerald Brewster has been appointed overall chairman of the appeal and two working groups have been formed. One is being convened by Mr Jim Sansom our treasurer and will deal with the building work, permissions, grants etc. The other will be convened by Mrs Jill Scarff and will co-ordinate fundraising events.
Fundrasing events for your diary
We already have several events organised including a coffee morning and quiz night - check out the events diary for details of these and future events.
