It’s been long overdue but the restoration of our war memorial is finally complete, just in time for the celebration of the 150th Anniversary of our current church building.
If you have sponsored a name, filled Smartie tubes or attended our band concerts, thank you for your support.
We would also like to thank the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Pennine Township for the support in realising this scheme and helping restore our war memorial as a lasting and fitting tribute to the brave men of Milnrow who never came home.
Everyone at St James is delighted to announce that we have been successful in our application for a £10,000 grant for the restoration of or War Memorial.
For the past 12 months numerous fund raising activities have been supported by the wider community of Milnrow raising Almost £5,000. The award of our HLF grant now means that work can start in the next few weeks restoring the memorial and reinstating paths to and around the memorial.
