Church to reopen after £200,000 roof revamp
A church, which has been closed since January, is set to reopen this Sunday following a £200,000 revamp to its roof and a decade-long fundraising scheme.
The parochial church council at St Andrew’s Church in Hambleton - a village which has just 50 households - set out in 2007 to raise the funds after it was revealed that the 150-year-old slates were crumbling and needed to be replaced.
Under the leadership of churchwarden Miranda Hall the funds were raised and now the work to replace the crumbling slates has been carried out. On Sunday, a special songs of praise service will be hosted to celebrate.
