THE ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING
SUNDAY, 21st APRIL
The Annual Parochial Church Meeting
will take place immediately following the Sung Eucharist in the Parish
Church on Sunday 21st April.
At the meeting we will elect Churchwardens, five PCC members and appoint Sidesmen/women.
There will be reports on the parish’s finances and on the activities of the church.
This is an important meeting and it would be helpful to have a good attendance.
The meeting will be followed by a ‘bring and share lunch’ in the meeting room.
Please let Marjorie Robinson know what you intend to bring.
English Heritage has now
considered the grant application made by our Architect.
Some of the work they have decided is not urgent and can be deferred.
The estimated cost of phase one of the work is £14,624 and we will receive a grant of £11,000. Part of this work will doubtless include further investigations.
The estimate for phase two is £119,950 and we have received an in principle offer of £7,000. This leaves us with a shortfall of £112,950 on the second phase.
Having discussed this with the Standing Committee of the PCC, it looks as if we will need to raise a minimum of £50,000.
As we run at a deficit every year and use our reserve to make up the short fall, a figure of £70,000 may be more realistic.
We will be applying to other grant making bodies, but a lot of hard work lies ahead and we will need people from both the church,
and the town, to respond generously. All ideas for fundraising schemes will he considered and we need to start immediately.
