Weʼre raising £2,000 to help restore the former Green Road Chapel in Stratton St Margaret, and turn it into a community asset.

Swindon, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Our chapel is in the heart of the historic centre of Stratton St Margaret, built in 1869 by non-conformists and now under the care of Stratton Saint Margaret Parish Council. This charming example of gothic revival is in need of restoration and a new purpose, we want to ensure it can become an asset for the community.

We’ve already started work; we’ve removed all the weeds and overgrowth and have made the roof secure and watertight. Our next aim is to restore the floor and do what is necessary to the brickwork.

We’d love to give the chapel a new lease of life, maybe as a space to get married, to use as a place of remembrance for those coming to the cemetery to pay their respects to loved ones, or as an exhibition space for our thriving local arts group (the list goes on).

I‘ve created this page as a Councillor for Stratton St. Margaret Parish Council.

    Firstly, thank you to our first donations! Secondly, I thought I should share some pictures of the interior of the chapel, just so you can see why we’re seeking your generosity. Please please help us turn this place back into something our community can be proud of. 😊
