PLEASE HELP US REPAIR OUR

GRAVEYARD MEMORIALS

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.
