More Good News from the Dome of Home
The Church of Ss Peter, Paul and Philomena in New Brighton has been awarded a second grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This time it is for a scheme valued at £250.000 that will complete the insulation and weatherproofing of the building and include making good the internal plaster work damaged by years of water ingress through the roof. The scheme also includes the making of a community area in the narthex by providing a glass screen beneath the choir loft. This area will have a live screen link to a webcam mounted on the roof which will be able to show views of Liverpool bay. The first £39,800 of the grant is available for the development stage of the project. This grant from the HLF follows an earlier grant for a £290,000 scheme, under which most of the waterproofing and insulation was carried out.
