Building Fund 200 Club


Renewal of shares for 2020 – 2021.

The 200 Club is now in its 17th year, with almost 300 shares issued. We have again given out 84 prizes to a total value of £1800, and given the same amount to the building fund. Once again, your contributions have helped pay for essential maintenance, including the restoration of the churchyard lantern arch and pillars, and refurbishment of all the external doors. Chancel and nave walls have been re-rendered, which involves applying 5 layers of lime plaster, one at a time. The chancel has been redecorated. The biggest project in the last year has been the painstaking restoration of the beautiful Victorian tiled floor to its original glory.

In the coming year, there is, as always, more to be done. The virus pandemic has prevented the church from being used, but the building continues to suffer the ravages of time and weather regardless.

The prize draw is normally held in the church hall on the fourth Sunday of each month, after the service, at around 10:45. There are prizes to be won each month, with £300 in summer and £300 at Christmas. You are most welcome to drop in for refreshments, as soon as the Coronavirus regulations allow. Since the virus struck and changed our lives so dramatically, we (socially distanced!) still draw the numbers every month, and publish them in Wenvoe What’s On.

The numbers drawn in July were as follows:

£50 – 223

£10 – 14, 53, 132, 141, 181

£25 – 34, 59, 96, 153

We are about to send out renewal letters to our faithful shareholders. If anyone else would like to contribute, please contact Dickon on 02920 769108.
