Wall Painting Restoration

Restoration of Wall Paintings – As many of you know Copford has some of the rarest and best preserved wall paintings of any parish church in the country.  In December 2014, they were surveyed by leading conservator, Tom Organ, formally of Canterbury Cathedral who carried out the last repairs in 2005.  Whilst the overall condition remains good, 800 years of wear & tear does take its toll and he has costed the most urgent repairs at around £16,000, which we hope that work will start early in 2018.

This means we will need to work even harder at fundraising this year and we need YOUR HELP please. Have you got an idea or could you help with organising a fundraising event, however big or small?  We would welcome your fresh ideas and input.  You wouldn’t have to join any committees or even come to Church, but the more people and ideas we have then the more successful we’ll be.
