Church is a winner
In November it was announced that the £1.9m Heart of St Mary’s Reordering Project at St Mary’s Church, Melton Mowbray, had won a coveted national award.
Architect Michael Bagot, pictured left, of Buttress, was presented with the President’s Award at the Church Architecture Awards by the Duke of Gloucester for the work carried out in the church during 2017.
The awards are run by the National Churches Trust and the Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association. St Mary’s was given a cheque for £500 and a chalice and patten to use for one year.
Below are pictured the Trustees of the Project. They are, left to right, John Craig, Mike McClure, Ian Neale, Melton Team Parish Rector, the Revd Kevin Ashby, Andrew Nutter and Roger Kirby.
