Update on St Wilfrid’s Church

You will hopefully have noticed that the clock is now finally working… like clockwork! This is thanks to our specialist, Wayne Francis, who has been travelling from Boston, Lincolnshire over the past couple of years to restore and repair the clock and three dials. The clock dates back to 1834 and was manufactured by John Haddon of West Hanbury, Northants.

The flagpole, damaged by Storm Kathleen on 6 April, is due to be removed soon and discussions are taking place about a possible alternative means of flying our flags. The damage to the roof can then be assessed and the necessary repairs take place.
