Funds helping to raise roof for Trowbridge church hall
Repairs to the roof of St John’s Church Hall in Trowbridge start on Monday, March 31.
The roof has been leaking since January and the work will cost £30,000. Churchgoers are fundraising to help pay for it.
Canon Christopher Brown, 69, who served as St James’ Church rector between 1988 and 2009, sold signed copies of his book A Time to Laugh – a book of reflections – at St John’s on Sunday as part of the campaign.
His wife, Julie Brown, also held a tabletop sale and the pair raised £400.
Last Thursday, the church received a grant of £5,000 from Trowbridge Area Board and they’ve already been given £10,000 from the Hills Group’s Landfill Community Fund.
The work is expected to take about two weeks and donations are still being sought.
