St Michael and All Angels, Budehaven have begun work on the repairs to the bellcote for which the CHCT granted £2,000 towards the project cost in October 2020.
In recent years the ceramic tiled floors of the aisles of St Michael’s church had become increasingly uneven, with the tiles tipping and cracking and creating a safety hazard. Investigation found that the sub-floor foundation was disintegrating and that the whole floor needed to be replaced. Also the large nave altar space had been paved with concrete slabs in a 1970s re-ordering; not only were these unsightly but rising damp penetrated the joints in wet weather and the slabs were heavily water-stained.
The Committee was delighted to receive the following good news from Andrew Yates, Priest in Penlee Cluster

Next CHCT Event
Rather than hold a summer party to raise sorely needed funds this year, the CHCT has come up with an idea to raise some cash, to spread the word about our work, and to recruit new members. Summer 21 parties have started and the names of those who have attended are being put in a hat for the Prize Draw for Lunch on the Quarter Deck for two kindly sponsored by the Nare Hotel. Please remember all attendees names to be emailed to Caroline Tetley for inclusion in the draw . The draw will take place at our Annual Meeting. Full details of how to take part and assist this initiative can be downloaded here. An invitation that you can use for your event can be downloaded here (A5 size) or here (A4 size).
We have taken the difficult decision to postpone the next Friends Outing until 2022 and to postpone the Annual Meeting to 23rd September. Full details soon.
Next Community Event
We do not have any details of community fundraising events at the moment but will post them here as soon as they come in.
