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

Pennines Township

Pennines Township Committee have awarded St James a grant of £2,000 towards our 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.

The Fallen of Milnrow

Thanks you for your support so far with this imitative. To date you have helped raise £1,030.

As part of our War Memorial Restoration Appeal we are inviting everyone to support the re-lettering of the names of the local lads who gave their lives in the Great War.

Your £10 donation will go a long way to have the names re-instated so that we never forget the ultimate sacrifice for King, country, family and friends. Your name will be entered in a scroll that will be displayed in church to recognise your support.

There are still 23 names to support so please spread the word.  We’d be delighted to receive support from local business.  Just drop us a line on  st.jamesmilnrow@outlook.com
