Church Roof Repair
St Mary Magdalene Church in Trimdon Village is among those to benefit from the Government’s Listed Places of Worship: Roof Repair Fund, receiving £46,600. Reverend Michael Thompson, of the Parish of the Upper Skerne in Trimdon, said the church would not have been able to carry out vital repairs without the grant.
He said: “A lot of hard work went into the application by church members and the wider community and everyone is delighted.The roof needs an awful lot of work doing to it to stop water running into the timbers.This is the first phase in a series of repairs to preserve it for future generations.”
