Return to Church Repair Project

Events for the Church Repair Fund

Part of our commitment to the National Heritage Lottery Fund is to raise awareness of all aspects of the Church and its surroundings. The PCC (Parochial Church Council for St Sylvester’s) and the East Prawle History Society are, therefore, planning a variety of events for this purpose. For instance, it is enormously helpful that we are talking to the AONB, who will help us with it by organising and/or joining in a few events:
