97-Year-Old Scarborough Church Looks To Replace Roof

A 97-year-old church in Scarborough's looking for donations to replace part of its building.

Queen Street Methodist Central Hall has started fundraising for its roof, and it needs £75,000.

Michelle Evans, who is a fundraiser there, said:

"We've had quite a few problems over the last few years with the gales and the tiles being blown off, so we've had to make repairs.

There's nail rot in the roof and the Church is 100 years old in three years time, so now is the time really, where we need to think of putting a new roof on for future projects.

The Church is used an awful lot by the residents in Scarborough.

We hold quite a lot of groups that use the hall downstairs, and now we've opened up the worship area inside the Church, which can also be used by the community."

Queen Street Methodist Central Hall is also looking for any grants, sponsors or friends who are willing to support their efforts.

Any donations, large or small, are welcome and can be done by sending a cheque to the Church or you can find details online at www.queenstreet.org.uk
