It won’t be possible to do the decorating until high level work, for example on the clerestory Tudor windows, is done and the damp sorted out. A windows project is in hand and substantial funding raised
After that the decorating and plaster repairs can be done in phases as the funds are raised. So the church has started a decoration fund to raise money over several years, which is being administered by The Friends.
Other restoration work on the church can be supported by grants but pure decorating cannot. And there is no VAT recovery.
As at August 2020 the Decorating fund was £21,160
We need to raise about £354,000 based on the architect's estimates.
For the repair and conservation of the Victorian glass and Tudor stonework nave clerestory windows the cost shown is as tendered and costed
