£10,000 grant for Southport’s St Lukes Church roof repair work

ST LUKES Church is set to benefit from a £10,000 repair grant to help fix its dilapidated roof.

The National Churches Trust Repair Grant t is designed to help the church on Hawkshead Street to fund urgent roof repairs which will help to remove it from the Heritage at Risk register.

Consecrated in 1882 and enlarged and embellished in 1897, St Luke’s has been a friendly, open and welcoming parish in Southport and the Diocese of Liverpool for over one hundred years.

Water penetration in the kitchen, toilets and south aisle are causing dampness and deterioration to internal surfaces. If left much longer timber decay in the roofs will become a real risk.
