Project Resound: Latest News

June 20, 2019

Our current fundraising total stands at £70,553 which thanks to all supporters is a great achievement. However, we still have some way to go to reach our target of £75,000 plus the £5,000 set aside for electrical and architectural contingencies.

The glass for the new window is now being leaded and installation is still on schedule for the first week of November. We have some further events to help us reach our target so we hope the village will be out in support.

ART THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES

The repeat walk and talk tour highlighting stories from every century since the church was rebuilt in the 1100s, will be held at 2:30pm on Sunday October 27th in St Michael’s church followed by tea and cakes.  Free entry.
