Ossett Trinity Church welcomes Mary
Mary Creagh dropped into the Holy Trinity Church in Ossett on 16 July to lend support for plans to make the church a community centre.
The church is seeking grants to improve the heating system so it can offer a range of activities for the Ossett community.
Mary said “I was delighted to visit Holy Trinity Church and see this magnificent grade 2 listed building. It was a privilege to meet Reverend Paul Maybury this week and see the new ecologically friendly heat pump boreholes being drilled. In 2003 the church building was on the English Heritage “at risk” register. Today it is being transformed thanks to the inspirational work of Reverend Maybury and the local community. I look forward to visiting Holy Trinity when the work is completed.”
The Reverend Paul Maybury said "Heating is virtually non existent and its bitterly cold in winter. We intend to use the Church for many community activities but will only be able to do so if we can install some heating. We intend drilling bore holes and having eco friendly heating with low maintenance and running costs with little effect if any on the Environment. I am grateful to Mary for coming to see our plans."
