Newsflash -  English Heritage Grant 

I have just received notification that St. Lawrence’s has been offered £9,000 towards the estimated £12,000 of stage 1 (the exploratory work and conservation reports stage) of the proposed repairs to the roof and stonework, and also, a grant in principle of £59,000 towards the estimated £92,000 cost of the actual repair work scheduled for 2014.

The P.C.C. has to confirm acceptance in January. It would then need to embark on fundraising and approaching the many grant making bodies to raise the remaining money.

The hugely successful auction raised £4,000! We also have some reserves to put towards this work, so I’m confident that the project is manageable if the wider community is supportive. The P.C.C. would value your comments by Jan.10th, which can be sent to me, the wardens or any PCC member.

The English Heritage architect wrote “St.Lawrence’s is one of the most attractive churches in the Midlands” and fully supported our hope to conserve the building for future generations, noting specially the grade 1 listing of the splendid carving on the south side of the building.
