THEFT – Lead removed from Churches

Please be aware of workers at the Church

We have received notice of a spate of lead thefts from the roofs of neighbouring churches.

Our picture shows the devastating impact of lead removal from a Church roof and apart from the damage caused by the theft, the structure is left vulnerable to the elements and more damage whilst repairs are being managed financially and practically.

Dear Friends


Could I alert you to the sad news that we are once more experiencing a spate of lead thefts from church roofs around the area. Please, as previously, alert any watchful neighbours to the possibility.
