£160,000 for church makeover

MORE than £160,000 has been raised towards the renovation of a Wargrave church.

The 21st Century Project is designed to modernise St Mary’s Church in Station Road with a new annexe, sound system and crèche at a cost of £500,000.

Most of the money raised so far has come from individual donations and a wine tasting evening held at Woodclyffe Hall in February raised £2,300.

Fund-raising began in November and has already paid for central heating to be installed.

Plans for the annexe are to be submitted to Wokingham Borough Council after they were approved by English Heritage.
