In addition to the regular maintenance requirements there are currently two active projects:
Restoration Of The Tower
The 97′ high Tudor tower, has withstood over 600 years of wear, tear and weather, but is now in urgent need a major repair. For example, currently parts of the tower have had to be supported with scaffolding and the top third of the tower requires the knapped flint cladding to be re-pointed and the stonework restored, at a cost of over £250,000.
Provision Of Toilet & Catering Facilities
All Saints’ Church complies with the provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act, because there is no toilet facility at all – whether able bodied or not. However, in this day and age, it essential to have such amenities and plans are afoot to create these and also a kitchen area. This will allow All Saints’ to be used far more widely and diversely. At least another £45,000 is required for this work.
The Friends receive no outside funding so the generous support of the public and local community is vital. Click here to find out how you can help.
