War Memorial Restoration

Mission Accomplished

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.

Pennines Township Supports War Memorial restoration scheme

The grant will be used to reinstate paths to and around the memorial. Work is expected to start in the next few weeks by Lloyd & Smith who are currently undertaking enabling works for our Chancel Restoration. The memorial scheme is expected to take 8-10 weeks.

Everyone at St James would like to thank the Pennines Township Committee for their generous support with this project. If you would like to help please drop us a line on st.jamesmilnrow@outlook.com. We’d love to hear from you.

War Memorial Restoration Appeal

We are pleased to announce the launch of our War Memorial Refurbishment Appeal.

2018 is the Centenary Year of World Ward I so we are attempting to refurbish the Ward Memorial to its former glory.  We are hoping to attract grant funding from The Heritage Lottery Fund and the local authority, but we need your help.

To get or fundraising started we’re offering you a tube of Smarties to enjoy …. but there’s a catch!  We would like you to return the tube filled with 20p pieces. Each tube filled to the top will hold £13.  If we could get 100 tubes returned that would be a fantastic start to our fundraising. Smarties are available at the back of church each Sunday.  Please see Linda Adshead for more information.

We will publicise anyone who returns a tube on our Facebook, Twitter and website. So if you’d like to take a tube to work and ask your colleagues for some help we’ll happily give your team, business, office some publicity.
