Work on the Spire is now complete. Thank you to all those who contributed to this project in both planning and fund raising.
We wish to acknowledge grants received and thank these organisations for their generous support:
English Heritage £25,353
National Churches Trust £6,000
Shropshire Historic Churches Trust £3,000
Congregational & Gen.Charitable Trust £3,700
Westbury Parish Council £1,000
Rea Valley Young Farmers £500
All Churches Trust £250
Seven Pillars of Wisdom Trust £ 200
Other receipts were from collections and events and we are particularly grateful for the very many individual donations from the parish and further afield. If you are interested to see the story of the fund raising campaign, please visit the Church and have a look at the display board.
A Thanksgiving Service was held in church in September at which Bishop Michael gave thanks for the speedy restoration of the spire and for the many donations and grants received. The Deputy Mayor of Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council also attended to present a plaque.
A final thank you to the Fund Raising Committee led very enthusiastically by John Turner for without them this project could not have been completed.
