ROOF APPEAL UPDATE

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated to the church roof appeal. Unfortunately when the work got started the contractor discovered some of the wooden supports had decayed and the cost of the new roof has increased to around £45,000. Further applications are being made for grants from local and national supporting bodies. If you or your business would like to make a donation to the new target you can give any amount online at www.johnknox.org.uk/buyaslate
