The construction of what is a beautiful modern annexe to our ancient church is now completed, and work is underway to both fit out the annexe for use.  The major improvements to access routes described in our Safe Access for All are completed..  

Thank you to everyone who sent in letters of support for this activity - Rev Jane received a total of 103 letters within 2 weeks - so there is no doubt that these changes are very much wanted.  

Grappenhall and Thelwall Parish Council has generously awarded £5,000 towards the improvements to access and car parking within the Grappenhall Conservation Area. 

Bernard Sunley Foundation has kindly pledged £10,000 for Safe Access for All. 

Cheshire Community Foundation has awarded £10,000 for renovating and extending the Courtyard by the annexe entrance to provide a place where people can sit outdoors to enjoy the peace and greenery in the Churchyard.  

Robert Clutterbuck Foundation have awarded £1,500 to fund the lighting of the pedestrian path to help young people get safely to Scout activities and older people have a safe, well surfaced, well lit way of accessing activities throughout the Conservation area.

Thank you all our donors particularly at this difficult time.
