ST MICHAEL’S WEATHERVANE APPEAL - CAN YOU HELP?

The Church Weathervane is in the shape of a Cockerel. It came from Whitecross Church in Hereford and was placed on the Church Tower in 1976. It has been a feature of St Michael and All Angels’ Church for over 40 years.

Three months ago, after Storm Hannah, it was seen to be balancing, rather precariously, on one leg because the pivot mechanism had seized and a leg had been (rather painfully) wrenched from its body in the wind.

The weathervane has now been removed from the tower and is in need of complete restoration or replacement. At the same time one of the finials on the tower was found to be cracked and so this, too, will have to be repaired.

The costs of this work is not yet known, but current estimates are around £12,000. Once we can fully cost the project we will be able to apply for grants from heritage bodies which should mean we will be well on the way to restoring the tower to its former glory.

We are very grateful to everyone who has donated to date - donations received so far exceed £2000! For those of you who still wish to donate, cheques marked on the back “Weathervane Appeal” can be dropped at the Vicarage or at Field Edge, Chapel Lane. Please note that due to changes in banking regulations, cheques must be made payable to the exact name on the church account which is ‘PCC of St Michaels Bodenham’.

Other fundraising ideas or payment in other forms gratefully received! Contact Revd Paul Roberts on 01568-797863 or Jim Crane on 01568-797095.
