Heritage Stimulus Fund

We were awarded £3.5 million by Historic England to fund urgent repairs to 31 historic local churches to help keep them open and in use by local people.

The funding comes from the Heritage Stimulus Fund, part of the Government's Culture Recovery Fund, and was awarded in two rounds.
