Some of you will have heard about the lead theft which took place in October 2016. This is a major set back to us in the little church in Eyeworth. Just a few years ago we had major work completed on the roof with grant aid from Historic England (English Heritage as was) along with the hard work of fund raising by ourselves and our friends. The lead covering the nave roof was all taken and we discovered this on Oct 19th. It was reported to the police and our insurers. The amount of cover for lead on churches has been reduced due to the amount of theft in recent years so we will not get the full cost of replacing the lead. It may be that we need to look at alternatives.
