Congratulations all round 

Congratulations to the Samworth Centre and St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, who were both named finalists in this year's Melton Times Achievement Awards which were announced on Friday night (October 19th). 

The Samworth Centre was amongst six finalists in the category of best place to eat or drink, while St Mary's Church was amongst five finalists in the category Community group/Project of the Year for its impressive £1.9m refurbishment. Unfortunately, neither won the coveted award.

Next year the Samworth Centre @ St Mary’s, a designated charity, has its 15th birthday. To find out more about it read Keith Wilson's report by clicking here.

*Meanwhile, this is not the only award that St Mary’s Church has been nominated for. Its Re-ordering Project has put it in line to win the coveted Presidents’ Award at the 2018 Church Architecture Awards. 

Winner of the accolade, which is for new church buildings and re-orderings, extensions or alterations to existing church buildings, will be announced by the Duke of Gloucester at a presentation ceremony at St Mellitus College, in London, on Thursday, November 1.

*You can still support our Re-ordering Project at St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray. To download a leaflet which explains how you can help click here.
