Many thanks to Church warden, Christine, for this update…
The contract for repairing the spire has been appointed to Bowmans of Stamford, who are due to start the work on Mon 11th August. Work is expected to take place over 14 weeks and to finish before Christmas.
The architect has recommended that the spire is strengthened with a steel rod assembly, the cost of which will be circa £3,500. This would normally be seen as an improvement by the insurers, however they have agreed to pay 50% of the costs and the monies raised by the recent spire climb event will go towards the church’s 50%.
Future fundraising events include stalls at the Waltham Fair on 20th & 21st Sep and a Barn Dance with Ceilidh Band on the evening of 1st November at Waltham Village Hall – £8 per head to include supper – tickets from Riky on 01664 464710.
