Staple Church Restoration & Refurbishment
Sttaple church is in much need of Restoration and Refurbishment, and to this end a Restoration and Refurbishment committee has now been established, working alongside the PCC to investigate funding with a view to applying for a Lottery Grant next year which is needed for roof and structural repairs and redecoration as specified by the architect in his recent quinquennial review.
The Restoration and Refurbishmentcommittee meets every four to six weeks and progress will be recorded in this section of Staple-online.com, so check back often.
The Restoration and Refurbishmentcommitte are currently working on a survey which will go to all households in the village very shortly, encouraging everyone to have a say in how the church could be more relevant going forward and how the community could make more use of the building with some creative thinking. This is particularly important as National Lottery want to see any grant funding distributed going towards a project which will benefit the whole of the local community.
