Event - Worksop Priory launch ‘appeal for renewal’

THE ICONIC Worksop Priory has launched an appeal for renewal to carry out some ‘much needed maintenance’ work.

The Worksop Priory Church of Our Lady and St Cuthbert in the town centre is looking to raise over £450,000 for a new heating system, in order to ‘meet the demands of the 21st Century’.

A church spokesman said: “The Priory Church is the most historically significant building in the area and has been serving the needs of the people of Worksop for over 900 years.”

“Since time immemorial, the good folk of Worksop have had only one grumble - that it’s too cold.”

He continued: “We have now taken the decision to explore renewable energy, couple with new unobtrusive underfloor heating as the best way to provide for the needs of the church.”

To help raise money, the church will be providing guided tours of the grounds, gatehouse and monastery site on 22nd June. Pimms and Canapes will also be served.

Cheques and donations can also be sent to Father Nicolas Spicer, The Vicarage, Cheapside, Worksop, Notts, S80 2HX.
