Building for the Future

The shock news that a quarter of a million pounds was needed to save the church is recalled by those who were there at the time.  The 12-minute film shows some of the defects found and follows work on the repair and restoration.

Members of The Friends of All Saints and other Braunston residents tell how they reacted to the initial bombshell and how they then set about raising the money.

The film, produced by a Braunston resident and called "Building for the Future", also explains why fundraising is still needed, even though the major repairs have been carried out.

The latest requirement has been for some £60,000 to restore the two West End windows.  That has been paid in full by the Friends, through fundraising and individual donations.

Watch the film below:

The next big event will be the Arts & Crafts Fair on 13/14 October.  This year it is spilling over from the church to nearby houses with the innovation of an Arts and Crafts “Trail” along the High Street to The Plough.  Sheila Parr, who is organising the event with Kate Mawer, Odette Phipps and others, says there has been huge interest.
