Richard Bennett's Mayoral Appeal supports


St. John's  Church, Read development fund.

A big THANK YOU from the Parochial Church Council to the Mayor of the Ribble Valley, Richard Bennett, who during his year in office raised a staggering amount for the St. John's Church Development Fund. This very generous donation will now accelerate the plans for renewing the heating system.  




Fund raising started in 2016 and the following items are now completed:



Phase 1: 2017 Interior repainting of ceilings and walls.



Phase 2: Car Park. In 2017 the car park was developed, holding up to 20


               vehicles. This work was completed by Richard Atkinson who spent


                his time  reclaiming the area and top coating the parking area


                making it useable for all events, including the regular weekly


                services.


                Wall. In 2017 the repairs to the front Churchyard wall were


                completed.


                               



The Fundraising team meet every month in St. John's Church.


The latest goal is to replace the central heating boiler. There are several


fund raising initiatives underway - for more details - pop into St. John's and


find out more about these.​​ Or you can even visit our 'Just Text Giving' site


and help add to the funds directly.
