Significant Grant Funding for the Idsworth Church Friends Trust
I am pleased to announce that, in December 2018, The Idsworth Church Friends Trust was awarded a Developers Fund Grant by the East Hampshire District Council of £50,000. This was the result of many months of hard work on the part of the trustees and they deserve our thanks.
This money has been given by the EHDC specifically for the repairs to the East Wall and the replacement of the East Window. Plans are now being put in place for this urgent work to be carried out later this year.
In addition, a grant of £4000 towards this project was received from the Headley Trust.
As a consequence, the trustees have decided to reduce significantly the programme of events for 2019 in order to give the building contractors a clear run to complete this vital work.
The 2018 events exceeded all expectations: 1600 people attended our extensive programme of concerts, events and gatherings. Over 1000 came to the Art Exhibition in September. Thank you for your support!
