RECENT EVENTS

St Andrew’s Thursford Celebrate a ‘big win’ on the Lottery!
Lottery Award

“It felt just like winning the lottery” said Steve Yerby, Church Warden of St Andrew’s Thursford, when a letter arrived announcing that the National Lottery Community Fund had awarded the church a £40,000 grant.

The money will help fund a scheme to fit out the church building as a community hub for Thursford, which has no village hall and has long since lost its shop and school where people could gather in the past. The project includes laying on water and drainage, installing a wheelchair friendly toilet and a kitchenette, providing disabled access and repairing Victorian windows which are distorting and cracking.

Success in winning the award is the direct result of support and involvement from all parts of the Thursford community who have attended numerous fund raising events and shown their enthusiasm for concerts, meetings, clubs, workshops and social gatherings which will now be able to be held in the church, along side monthly services, in comfort. As the award letter states, “We want to help your community thrive”.

“Pulling together funds for our project has been a long haul” said church treasurer Chris Rheinberg, “but we are now fully funded and we are all so grateful to the National Lottery, who along with the North Norfolk Big Society Fund, National Churches Trust, Norfolk Geoffrey Watling Trust, All Churches Trust and the Garfield Weston Fund have made it possible.”

A VILLAGE FEAST
Village Supper
Over 40 people from Thursford and the surrounding area, enjoyed a fabulous village supper at Hindringham Village Hall on the 1st February. A wide range of exotic dishes had been prepared by many of those taking part. Money raised will pay for the annual roof maintenance and gutter cleaning at St Andrew's.
