Heavens above, a Heysham church roof needs some love.

Campaigners are trying to raise £80,000 to replace the roof of St Peter’s Church.

They have already raised £11,000 but are rallying the community to find the rest.

Last year, an inspection found that the roof of the Grade I listed building needed replacing.

A website HERE has been set up and a programme of fund raising events has been planned. These include a recent Flower Festival, which raised £2,600.

Clare Bland is running an eBay account to raise money, and has offered to collect unwanted items to sell on the auction website. Clare can be contacted on 07715489920 or email clarebearbland@hotmail.com

Another resident Barbara Langridge is compiling a traditional cookbook to sell to raise funds.
