Church grant aids social calendar

Tockwith Church has been given a facelift after securing a grant from Yorventure.

Improvements include installing a new ramp for disabled access, a new kitchen, and increased storage.

Churchwarden Angela Jenkins, said: “We are so grateful to Yorventure for their financial support to enhance our church facilities and we are looking forward to staging a number of great events.

“The result is that the church can further develop the functions taking place, not just for church services, but also the community.”

Forthcoming events planned include a comedy and curry night on September 14, A Night of Sax (as part of the Wetherby Festival) on November 3 and BBC presenter Harry Gration talks about his life and faith on November 17.
