MUCH has been made in recent days about the worrying state of repair of some of the area’s churches.
Holmfirth Parish Church is one of those in urgent need of repairs.
And that is why the church is hoping for a capacity audience for a fund-raising concert next week by Honley Male Voice Choir.
The church has been given a big grant by English Heritage to help pay for repairs to the leaking roof and crumbling facing stones which have to be dressed.
But the church aims to raise at least another £25,000 itself to meet the repair bill.
Honley Male Voice Choir is lending a hand in the fundraising with a concert in the church next Saturday (July 17).
It is called Summer Time and should go someway towards helping them to meet that target.
The concert starts at 7pm and tickets are £6 from the church, choir members or from the choir’s concert secretary Roger Wild on 07887987522.
