We are very sorry that no obvious progress has been made to reinstate the historical lychgate and war memorial.

5th June 2021

Our church insurers, Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, have appointed Ridge and Partners LLP to oversee the project.

Since the church building is a Grade I listed building, the lychgate has to be restored in accordance with Grade I rules, and this is being taken account of in the planning.

I understand that a restoration company has inspected the lychgate and provided Ridge & co with appropriate information, and that we are awaiting action from Ridge to further the project.

Sadly it will not be reinstated before Remembrance Sunday 2021.
