New Sound & Light System For Historic Church

Dorset Historic Churches Trust

Painstaking work to re-wire and install a new lighting and sound system in a 15th Century Church has finally finished thanks to a local grant.

Dorset Historic Churches Trust gave The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Cattistock £7,000 to help complete the strenuous project just before the busy Christmas period.

The installation comes in the nick of time for the church's annual carol concert and Christmas services.

Robert Sharpe, Deanery Representative for DHCT, said: "The Trust was delighted to be able to award this grant to The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Cattistock, in order for the essential electrical work to be completed.

"This beautiful church has a vibrant and active community and it is fantastic that the work will make the building more welcoming and usable for the village."

The Erskine Muton Trust gave a similar sized grant and community gifts and fundraising activities also helped fund the work.

Ian Anderson of The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul added: "It was a pleasure to welcome so many visitors to the church's celebration service last week.

"We'd like to say a big thank you to both the DHCT and the Erskine Muton Trust and the Cattistock Community Fund for their generous grants and to all the parishoners for their superb fundraising efforts. This is a church that is well-loved by the local community and we are all delighted that the work has been completed ahead of our Christmas celebrations."
