March 2018 - St Michaels Church
Following the dry weather last autumn the church has moved, currently large vertical cracks where the East Wall has moved horizontally away from the North and South Flanking walls are clearly visible. Additionally due to further problems at the West End with the Tower, the Bells are now not being rung. Currently the church are trying to raise £120,116.00 to fund the East End, it is hoped that sufficent will be raised so that further work not yet agreed/finalised can then be used to start this work and get the bells ringing.
Full details are available on the church's website. www.stmichaelskirby.org.uk, alternatively cheques can be sent to
