The Friends is delighted to announce that the Oxford Historic Churches Trust(ohct.org.uk) awarded us a grant of £8000 yesterday. This is another great boost to the initial fundraising target of £50,000 that we need to raise this year to start Phase 1 of vital structural repair works to the church planned for the Spring of 2022.
“Phase 1” includes a tower masonry repair trial, masonry conservation to the East Chancel, North Vestry, South Transept, roof tile replacements and other weather-proofing works. The purpose of the trial is to assess the extent of the damage and likely full cost of repair before committing to a tower stone replacement programme in Phase 2 that would ideally start in early 2023.
Thank you OHCT and thank you all for your continued support!
