PLEASE HELP US REPAIR OUR
Our volunteers have always strived to maintain our church
grounds as a quiet tranquil place to visit
However, in recent times a number of memorials have become
unsafe and, in accordance with Health and Safety requirements
and advice from Blackburn Diocese, we had to lay flat
14 memorials, causing some distress to those visiting the
graves of their loved ones.
The next of kin are responsible for returning memorials
to a safe condition, and to date 5 memorials have been repaired,
but we have been unable to locate the families of the
remaining memorials. We would love to repair these
headstones but as with most small churches our finances
will not allow us to undertake the necessary repairs.
To help us achieve our aim St Peter's church has started a
'Crowd Funding' initiative to help us repair these memorials,
for further information and details of how to contribute
please follow this LINK
Alternatively, donations made payable to
'Inskip St Peter's Church' can be left at St Peter's vicarage.
