St Mary’s Church repairs update

As reported in the October – November 2021 issue, whilst the nave roof of Shipton Church has been repaired, we continue to need to raise funds to repair the south aisle roof and also for improving the flooring, heating and kitchen and toilet facilities. We held two events in December, the Christmas tree festival and the auction of promises, which raised a total of £2,800. We thank everyone in the village and from further afield who kindly supported these events. 

More events are planned throughout the year. As well as raising funds and providing fun activities for the village, this will assist us in making applications for grants.  The first is a coffee morning in the church on Saturday 14 May from 10am to 12 noon for people to come and see the progress that has been made and the plans for further work. We hope to have a cake stall and plants for sale as well. 

All events will be advertised on posters around the village, in the Church News and on social media so please keep a look out!
