Cumbrian churches win roof repair cash.
In a story carried by the Westmorland Gazette today, it's announced that a number of churches in the South Lakeland and Eden areas are to benefit from a £150,000 fund. These churches, namely, St Cuthberts at Kentmere, St John the Evangelist at Levens and St Patrick at Patterdale, will each receive funds that will be used to repair roofs and otherwise waterproof walls and roof structures and make them more readily available to the communities that they serve.

These three churches are only three of a total of 372 parish churches across the country that will benefit from a total overall fund of around £19million, further protecting these buildings for future generations to use and enjoy.
