St Sampson's Church Appeal

Project aim: creating a flexible, warm, well-lit community space, which everyone can enjoy and use for church and community groups, activities, events and concerts.

The South Transept and Nave roofs have been repaired. We are now starting to research and plan improvements to the inside of the church, including heating, lighting, flooring and toilet facilities. Once the whole project is complete, the building will be available for bookings and income earned will help with the future upkeep of the building.

Thank you

We are so grateful to everyone who has given to the project so far. We give grateful thanks for grants which have been awarded by Crapper & Sons Ltd (£32,000) and Hills Group Ltd (£10,000).  The grants were made available through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) which is administered for Crapper & Sons Ltd. and Hills Group Ltd. by Community First, the Rural Community Council for Wiltshire.

A CCTV/Audio Intruder Alarm System has been installed on the roof to make this area more secure. Our thanks are due to the Waylands Estate Charity and the Allchurches Trust Ltd. who contributed towards the cost of this.

Our thanks are also due for grants which have also been awarded by the Red Lion Charity, Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust, National Churches Trust and the Wolfson Foundation.
