RAISE THE ROOF?? NO!! HELP US KEEP THE ROOF IN PLACE!

Were you baptised and/or married in Shirland Church? 

Do you want to see the village church open and watertight? 

The Parochial Church Council of St Leonard's Church, Shirland has been informed that urgent and substantial repairs are needed to the North and South Aisle roofs of the church. This could cost upwards of £60,000. 

A decision has been made to set up an account to raise funds for this work. 

The PCC intends to apply for grants to assist with the payments, but also needs to raise funds through donations, legacies and fund-raising in the Parish. 

We intend to hold extra fund-raising activities to help with this, but already struggle to raise enough to keep the church running on a day-to-day basis. 

We invite those who live in the Parish to support us in this venture, and welcome suggestions to help in any way with events, sponsorship etc. 

We are grateful for donations and monies raised so far amounting to £9586.70

Further donations, however small, can be sent to the PCC Treasurer, Trevor Gosling, 14 Fernlea, Shirland, Derbyshire DE55 6EP


St Leonard's Church Caretaker

Once again, we are looking for someone to look after our church. 

Do you have a few hours to spare each week? We can offer a small honorarium and possibly someone to show you the ropes. Anyone interested can give me a call on 01773 520540. 

Rosemarie Pepler (Churchwarden)
