After 5 years of working up grant applications and gaining necessary consents from the appropriate bodies (Diocese , Victorian Society , English Heritage being the principal authorities) we have at last reached our funding target of £125,000 net of VAT to undertake the works agreed. We look forward to keeping you posted on developments as they progress. Our aim is to establish a warm and welcoming environment which can be utilised by all our village community groups when they are planning for attendances larger than 50 ,which is the current limit in our village hall, sports club or bowls room. The acoustics and size of our wonderful building will thus attract a wider range of musical and cultural events than was formerly possible . It will also assume a more central role much as it did throughout much of its 1000 year history.
