The Winspire Project - Preparing For The Next 800 Years
Winspire Aims And Objectives
The Winspire project aims to improve the fabric of the building by repairing the windows at its west end, and repairing the spire in time for the 800th anniversary of our foundation in 2020.
It also wants to put the church back into the centre of Sandhurst by improving community links and reinforcing its 800 years of service to the area.
Our Story So Far - March 2018
The Winspire implementation team is making progress towards starting repair work on the windows. The faculty application has been approved by Oxford Diocese and is now at the Chancellors Office. We are in the process of choosing our contractors for PCC approval. All glass conservators are busy people, so we want to get on their list as soon as possible! As part of the project we are also investigating the restoration of the clock face and the repair of the mechanism. We are actively seeking contractors to repair the spire in order to get quotations which will be part of our Heritage Lottery Fund application.
At March 2018 we have raised almost £65,000 out of a target of £150,000.
