South Trancept Roof Repairs Completed
17th December 2020
On 16th December, the roofing contractors finished the roof repair on the South Transept. On 17th December, at 15:00 the architect inspected the repair and we now have approval to drop the scaffolding. This is scheduled for Monday 21st Dec 2020.
After approximately 10 weeks of work, punctuated by poor weather conditions and unscheduled wooden structure repairs, its fantastic that this first milestone has been reached.
Funding secured to allow first stage of project to proceed.
26th October 2020
The first stage of much needed repairs to the roof of St Sampson’s Church have begun, thanks to a £20,000 grant which St Sampson’s Church PCC has received from Crapper & Sons Ltd, and a £10,000 grant from Hills Group Ltd. The grant was made available through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) which is administered for Crapper & Sons Ltd. and Hills Group Ltd. by Community First, the Rural Community Council for Wiltshire.
Our thanks are also due for grants which have also been awarded by the Red Lion Charity and Wiltshire Historic Churches.
