Red Brick Wall (East wall) Appeal St. Peter's Goldhanger


In the March edition of the Parish Magazine you will find an informative article by David Newman, on the rather special red brick walls that are a feature of the village; and indeed a heritage feature. Sadly, the eastwall of the churchyard collapsed two years ago.

The Church PCC is hoping to rebuild the fallen east wall.

Grant aid towards the cost is being sought and two very enjoyable Chinese Feasts were held raising nearly £900. Thank you all so much for participating in these, especially those who provided the desserts.

Re-building work will make use of salvaged bricks, but only those from parts of the wall set in lime mortar can be re-used. We have to buy additional bricks. In the spring, we plan to launch a sponsorship appeal to purchase the special saddleback coping bricks, we will need about 140 of these.

We will give you a further up-date in next month's Parish Mag.
