A craft fair is to be held this Saturday (September 30th) to raise funds for a Highbridge church’s fundraising appeal.
One of the large 160-year-old windows in the east wing of St John’s Church is at a risk of collapsing and needs to be repaired at an estimated cost of £3,000.
The fundraising has already been boosted by a fish and chip supper and a three-day summer flower show, plus other events.
This Saturday, from 10am-1pm, there will be a craft fair at the church, with 20 craft stalls raising funds towards the project. All will be welcome.
Rev Sharon Crossman, pictured, who is the church’s vicar, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “It’s a lovely old window that displays the story of the crucifixion and resurrection but over time the glass has started to buckle and get out of shape.”
“As time goes by there’s a risk of it breaking and collapsing, damaging the glass above it, so we’d really like to repair it.”
“We therefore need to raise £3,000 to get the delicate work done to reset it, repair it and adding new metal supports while retaining the original 160 year-old glass.”
