Lottery grant given to Todmorden church
3:20pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
WORK is set to be carried out on the steeple and roof of a village church after a lottery grant of £85,000 was secured.
Churchgoers at St Michael and All Angels at Cornholme have received confirmation of the money which will come from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Initial work will see the existing rotting timber roof replaced and further work will see a new covering for the vestry.
The donation is just the latest piece of good fortune enjoyed by the church from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Previously parishioners were awarded a sum of £50,000 towards the restoration of the church’s historic organ.
Another £40,000 is now being sought from the fund in order to replace hundreds of panes of broken glass around the 111-year-old church, which is also home to a thriving community centre.
