Thank you to FOTCH for its fantastic support with the Wall Works Challenge which has kept our medieval building in good order. The grant and huge amount raised have enabled some major works to be completed. The final stage of the Wall Works in the South Aisle of the church will no doubt be messy but once this is complete, the professional cleaning of the Gore Memorial can be undertaken. The Gore Memorial is without doubt a unique part of the heritage of Tring Church and the grant from FOTCH towards the work on this heritage item is much appreciated.
The generous Birthday Gift from FOTCH will enable the church to engage with the community for years to come. More than 100 people came to the church following the VE Day commemoration in May, nearer 800 in June for the Charter 700 celebrations and more than a thousand school children visit the church during the course of a year. An effective projection system will enhance presentations made, especially for the children who have grown up in the modern, audiovisual world.
The support of all FOTCH members is massively appreciated.
Rector, St Peter & St Paul’s
