Misterton church roof appeal boost

THE ongoing campaign to raise over £30,000 to help save All Saints’ Church in Misterton has received another boost.

A winter wassail was held just before Christmas which saw carol singers perform in Old Forge Road, Grove Park, Hillsyde Avenue and Swallow Court, raising another £110 in donations for the church roof appeal.

The church has been targeted eight times in as many years by lead thieves - resulting in a £33,308 repair bill - but community events have seen almost £20,000 raised so far.

More fundraising events are planned in the new year.
