The Catholic Bishop’s Conference of England and Wales has granted us £168k to help fund urgent repairs to the roofs of the Bell Tower, North Cloister, St John’s Chapel, Confessionals and North Porch. Problems include loose tiles, leaks and occasional squirrel infestations.
The money forms part of the Culture Recovery Fund from Historic England – a government initiative to support cultural institutions after Covid.
As with all such grants, the recipient has to raise a portion of the cost themselves. In our case this is £42k. We have been able to contribute £15k from our own funds but need to raise the additional £27k.
