Holy Trinity Church hopes to secure lottery cash for repairs

A CHURCH in Leamington is hoping to secure lottery cash to carry out major repairs.

Holy Trinity Church is preparing a bid for £205,900 for repairs to the roof and the structure of the Grade II listed Beauchamp Avenue church.

The Victorian church already plays host to a number of community activities and concerts, but if the bid for Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) cash is successful, the parochial church council has a number of expansion plans in the pipeline, including the opening of a dementia café.

The church, which opened in 1847, was awarded a £14,000 HLF grant last year to prepare the application for the full grant, the deadline for which is November.




HLF West Midlands head Vanessa Harbar said: “We are delighted that, thanks to National Lottery players, Holy Trinity Church can now progress their plans to ensure that the fabric of this much-loved building is secure and enable more people to visit and enjoy it.”
