    Story

    Tragically, we've just discovered that the lead has been stolen from the roof of our wonderful Church tower. As well as providing protection from the elements, the lead had historic inscriptions dating back to at least the 18th century. Now it's all gone.

    All we can do is begin the long and costly process of repair. Can you help us? We don't know what the costs will be yet, but it's likely to run into many thousands of pounds. Just making temporary arrangements to make the roof watertight is going to be challenging.

    St George's is a loved part of our village community - alongside our worship we host events all year round from Christmas and Easter to our popular Snowdrop Weekend each spring. Any amount, small or large, will make a real difference.

      This page was closed as we achieved our initial fundraising towards the roof repairs. However, the task of meeting costs, especially in light of the pandemic continues. Our current JustGiving page cane be found here https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/snowdropappealdamerham

      We, like all the Church, have moved online. But St George's is still there, and the repair work needs to be completed. In the process of removing concrete cladding on the east face of the Belfry severe damp was discovered behind it. This means the whole east face of the Belfry needs to be renewed. This, together with delays caused by poor weather, and the extended time scaffolding has had to be in place, has added some £15,000 to our total costs, of which we have raised perhaps £5,000. Can you help? Please donate today.

      Watch out for an interview (which took place at St George's Church, Damerham) on Monday, and which will hopefully be broadcast as part of a feature on Meridian News, examining the serious and widespread theft of lead across our region. And let people know we continue to raise funds, with work hopefully beginning in March.
