St. James’s Church Tower Appeal

Until 14th April 2024
Anne Blessley Gallery

The church tower at St James’s, Bushey has been an iconic part of Bushey for more than 700 years. Sadly, time has taken its toll and the tower roof is in need of extensive repairs. Once completed, at an estimated cost of £30,000 it will be necessary to restore the tower’s interior! This need has prompted an appeal committee to be set up to raise funds from the wider Bushey community. Currently in excess of £3,500 has been raised and work is proceeding on the next fund-raising events.
(Exhibition organisers: Gay Butler, Pat Woollard and John Gerry)
