Roof repairs start

Roof repairs start

Thanks to money given by lottery players, the church will be able to host many more events and visitors.

St Thomas’ Church at Haymarket in Newcastle has received a confirmed award of £105,900 towards essential repairs to the roof, and to install toilets, including an accessible toilet. Thanks to money given by lottery players, the church will be able to host many more events and visitors. The roof work is starting this week and will continue for about 8 weeks; we then pause for the busy season around November & December, and in January we install the toilets. By next Easter the church should be ready for much greater use.

St Thomas‘ is widely known. What most people don’t know is that when it rains volunteers have to move buckets to catch the drips, but we get no government funding to help. The church has no accessible toilet. What should be such a welcoming building is limited, and the people of St Thomas' long to return the building to being a centre for the community.
