As previously reported many grant applications have been made by Mike Wright to fund the now very urgent repairs to the tower – not least of which is the fact that the side (or “vice” tower – that’s the round one with steps leading up to the bell chamber) is falling away from the main tower!

Recently 2 of these applications have been successfully answered to the tune of £25,000. So the fund now stands at £130,000, but another £70,000 is still needed.
