The landmark spire of St John’s Church in Worksop, which is currently ‘at risk’, will soon be repaired thanks to a huge grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Alongside the repairs, funding has been given for a Heritage Activity Programme and a Heritage Worker, thanks to National Lottery players.
The Church is very pleased to announce the appointment of Helen Richards as Heritage Worker. Helen has extensive experience of heritage work and community engagement in Retford and Bassetlaw. She will be helping local schools, young people connected to the church and the wider community to explore the heritage of the church and the local area, investigate their own family histories and share memories.
The Church has much appreciated the public support so far and has planned another fundraising event. On Sunday 14th May at 3.00pm the Thurcroft Welfare Brass Band (runner up in the Yorkshire Brass Band Championship 2023) and Redlands School Choirs (winners of their classes in the Worksop Drama and Music Festival) will be entertaining with ‘The Best of British’. There will be a plant stall and refreshments.
Admission is £5.00 for adults and free for children. Pay on the door.
