The good news is that the church roof is about to undergo much needed and extensive repairs, thanks to a grant of £100,000 which St James's has received from the Government's Listed Places of Worship roof repair fund..
The grant doesn't cover the total cost but, with a contribution from our own building fund, we have been able to embark upon this work to help secure the future of St James's as the important and much-loved landmark that it is.
The work is due to be completed early in May.
Our next job is to repair the stonework, but that is another story.
