Grant for St Mary’s Church roof refused

A Sandbach church that applied for a Heritage Lottery Fund grant to repair its roof has been turned down.
St Mary’s Church, on High Street, Sandbach, announced the disappointing news in its parish magazine.
It said: “We are disappointed to report that we were not successful in our bid for lottery funding.
“Competition was stiff with upwards of 30 applications at any one time.
“We had made a good case for the need to re-roof the side chapels with a clear understanding that we are custodians of important heritage in Sandbach.
“A clear project plan had been presented.”
