Chris admits that water in the beautiful setting of Lake Windermere was one thing but when he found himself alongside friends and families of the recently departed performing funerals in the churchyard at Newchurch; standing in up to six inches of water, something needed to be done.
Newchurch Parish Church also plans to enhance the facilities for the many visitors who tend the graves of family and friends and to the wider community who may wish to visit the churchyard for quiet reflection or remembrance.
To complete the work we are estimating the cost to be in the region of £35,000. We have set up a specific JustGiving Site which is ready to accept any donations. Here is the link www.justgiving.com/newchurchcy.
