Massive Task Ahead

 

Hethersett Parish Church faces a massive fund-raising task to repair the church roof.

Over 95,000 is needed to stop rain getting into the building.

"Looking after an ancient building like our parish church is a costly business. Last year alone we repaired the drains at a cost of 28,000 and replaced stolen lead on the vestry roof with much tougher steel. This was achieved from our own resources and with good support for all our fundraising events," Church Warden Kate Wood writes in the November 2012 edition of the village's Good News magazine.

"Our next project is in a much bigger league. We urgently need to re-roof the north side of the naive to stop rain getting into the building and we now know this will cost upwards of 95,000," she added.

Last year, in addition to all the repairs, the church had to find over 100,000 to pay for salaries, activities and general housekeeping. The  nave roof project has been declared to be a top priority by the Parochial Church Council. At present the church is busy applying for a variety of grants.

"In the New Year we shall be applying for a number of other grants and expect to re-double our direct fundraising efforts to achieve our goal," Kate added.
