On 8th July we officially launched the Roof Tile Sale event at the Church. It was attended by over 60 visitors who purchased 203 tiles between them, and enjoyed the tea and cakes on offer. They will all receive their ownership certificates in the near future.
The vast majority of the visitors felt energetic enough to “scale” the steps of the tower to see the extent of the stolen lead, and the views over the village and surrounding areas. The weather was extremely warm and dry making it an enjoyable exercise.
The total tiles sold to date is 221, which is over 20% of the total available, so still plenty available! We plan to re-run the event in October, so people who didn’t go up the tower this time will have another opportunity. Bear in mind that in October, Christmas will be on the horizon, and a Tile Certificate may make a unique Christmas present.
