A 10-year project to raise money to install new facilities at St Andrew’s Church in Witchford is set to get underway.
It will mean that an accessible toilet and refreshment facilities will be installed at the church.
The parishioners have been working for more than 10 years on this project and are overjoyed that it is finally going ahead.
Much of the money has been raised from the generosity of a number of grant bodies including:
The Congregational and General Charitable Trust, Amey Community Fund, Garfield Weston, Allchurches Trust, Ely Community Trust and Cambridge Historic Churches Trust.

The remaining funds have been amassed from coffee mornings and other activities over the years largely due to the initiative of John and Pat Rickwood.
These activities are planned to continue to cover a loan and they are expected to expand with both the church and the church hall available for use by the community.
