The PCC has just been awarded two very generous grants.
Cloudesley is giving us £20,000 towards creating a new access to the roof void and repairing the organ loft roof. The new access will make it very much easier to get out onto the church roof to keep the gutters clear. At present the only access is on hands and knees underneath the bell frame. The organ loft roof was patched up a couple of years ago but this grant will enable us to mend it properly, replacing the rotten wooden substrate.
The second grant is from the AllChurches Trust which has awarded us £32,500 for the Heart of Islington project generally. This is a great boost towards funding the next stage of the project - restoring the church interior.
