New roof for St George's
27 August 2019 IN: Parish News
After many years of planning and fundraising by the congregation, and thanks to a generous grant of £233,000 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund towards the £300,000 project, St George, Stalybridge is delighted that its new roof and gutters were in place ready for its 179th anniversary. The birthday celebration was conducted by Archdeacon Cherry Vann and supported by visiting choirs.
The restoration works also included a new kitchenette in the upper lounge and an updated emergency lighting system.
St George's is grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for its generous grant, and for the continuing financial support of its congregation. It is still fundraising to restore the historic RENN organ.
