St Matthews Church meeting with Heritage England.

I was pleased that Deborah Williams from Heritage England agreed to meet to discuss the iconic status of St Matthews Church and how we can preserve the important Town’s heritage.

At the meeting on Friday 23 February 2024 also present at the meeting Dr John Edlin and Revd Jim Trood to discuss the background to St Matthews and the support the Church estate needs form funding bodies to preserve its Grade II* status.  That morning there were nearly a dozen volunteers present who were helping with tidying up and cleaning outside and inside the Church. It was good to see people drop in for coffee and tea and to have a chat. The Church provides an excellent safe space for the community.
