LETTER - ‘Thanks to donating towards Rickinghall Church repairs’
Thank you to all the people who attended or donated to the quiz and fish and chip supper held recently to raise money for St Mary’s Church, Rickinghall Inferior, a total of £389 was raised.
Thank you also to Jean Wright, quiz master, with help from husband John keeping score, and Richard and his staff from Botesdale Fish and Chip shop who supplied the supper.
Thanks are also due to the team of helpers who contributed so cheerfully and efficiently towards a happy atmosphere for the evening.
The money raised will be used towards repairs to the chancel roof and ceiling, the estimate for which amounts to approximately £64,500 if the work is carried out this year. The government recently offered a grant for repairs to the roofs of listed churches, this has been applied for but we will not know until the end of March if we have been successful as the amount offered by the government is to be divided across the whole of the British Isles.
Rickinghall Inferior Church is Grade I listed with the round tower dating back to the 11th Century.
