We were pleased to welcome Jane Norris, Assistant Church Warden for St Leonard, Marston Bigot to the Parish Council Meeting this month. She came with the wonderful news that a grant of £10,000 had been granted from the National Lottery for work to the retaining wall and The National Heritage Memorial Fund granted £94,000 for the church roof. As is often the case with grants, some matched funding is needed and any contributions to this should be to ‘Friends of Marston Church’. There will be fundraising events organised soon.
