plaxtol_church-150x150Applications for two grants have been made on behalf of the Church modernisation appeal, one to Garfield Weston and the other to Veolia Trust.  If successful, these would make a significant contribution towards the Church refurbishment appeal.  We would like to extend a massive thank you to Tom Hogg who has led this work and spent countless hours researching and completing the application forms.  We will give a further update once we know the outcome.

Can we also say a big thank you to all those Villagers who have sold items on the Plaxtol Facebook page and donated the proceeds to the Church appeal.  It’s very kind of you all and a welcome boost to the fund.



Plaxtol-church1As a first step in the planned re-ordering project at Plaxtol Church, the tower clock and hourly striking mechanism have been temporarily stopped, so that parts can be removed for modification. This is in preparation for installation of automatic winding and time-keeping regulation. It is anticipated that the process will take about three weeks. You’ll hear when it’s up and running again!
