Great news! St John the Baptist Church, Brinklow has been awarded a grant of £55,000 towards the repair of the church roofs. WREN/FCC grants were only available until March 2016 for grade 1 and grade 2* listed building repairs within 10 miles of an active and licensed landfill site so we are indeed fortunate to have won one of the last awards from the current grant scheme facilitated by National Churches Trust.
This grant together with the money raised locally over the past year from sponsorship, donations, fund raising and events is enabling the start of our huge restoration project with work on the nave and tower expected to start in April.
