Weather vane back on church

Stockport Express - - Your Views -

THE cock­erel weather vane is back in its right­ful place on the top of St Chad’s Church spire, over­look­ing Romi­ley and the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

The vi­tal re­pairs to the spire, at a to­tal cost of £140,000, were funded by a grant of £96,000 from the Listed Places of Wor­ship Roof Re­pair Fund, with the re­main­ing con­tri­bu­tions from St Chad’s Church and re­claimable VAT.

Richard Pen­nys­tan, vicar of St Chad’s, thanked the re­pair team from Sky­line Ltd in Old­ham, who spent 14 weeks ab­seil­ing down to work on high level plat­forms to un­der­take the stone re­pairs and the ar­chi­tects at Gra­ham Hol­land As­so­ci­ates of Knutsford, re­spon­si­ble for over­see­ing the spire ren­o­va­tion.
