COWBIT CHURCH RECEIVES LOTTERY GRANT
Cowbit St Mary’s is awarded £8,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). The project, led by local volunteers, will repair the clock and communicate the heritage of the church. Work will start soon and be completed by the end of 2015.
We want to trace the history back to at least 1907, the year the current clock was installed. So we are really interested to hear from anyone with memories of St Mary’s and special events that have taken place there. Please contact us to hear more, or to get involved.
