SAVE HALWILL CHURCH TOWER

 

NEWS UPDATE.....

Work moves on at a pace.... External decoration is finished - the colour chosen matches the original colour used in Victorian times. Internal redecoration 90% finished.

You can "Adopt a Part of the Tower" and dedicate it to a loved one. Contact John on 01409 221987 for details and look out for the display at local events.

Background...

2015: Significant cracks were identified in the west wall of the church tower. Investigation by the church architect confirmed that this crack and others extend the full height of the tower and require urgent attention.  In addition, the lack of adequate external perimeter drainage is causing damage to the fabric of the building. It was estimated that the work to attend to these issues would be around £280,000. Unless addressed the church and surrounding churchyard would have to be closed.

2016: An application to the Heritage Lottery Fund was submitted to cover this urgent work.  In addition, we were seeking funding to improve disabled access and publicise the heritage of the church and the surrounding area.   We are pleased to announce that our bid has been successful. HLF require us to match fund £19,000 of the project cost ourselves and a project team has been established to manage the work and co-ordinate this fund raising.

2017: Thanks to the generous support of the community and local charities we have all the necessary funding in place

2018: HLF approved the project and work started March 2018. Look out for local events giving more details.
