Just a reminder that there is still time to complete the survey to let us know exactly what improvements you would like to see take place at St. Anne’s with St. James. You can click the link here to get started: St. Anne’s with St. James Survey

The survey only takes a couple of minutes to complete, but your feedback is really important to us. Thanks so much for your time.

It’s time to find out which improvements you would most like to see take place at St. Anne’s with St. James. If you could take the time to complete the short survey then we can get a good idea of which areas are most important to users and find out if there’s anything else that we need to consider before finalising any plans.

Most people prefer anonymity so we don’t ask for your name and address etc but it would be useful if you give your email so we can keep you up to date on progress.  It will be used for the purpose of this project only, and will never be shared with a third party.

We are delighted to announce that we will be working in partnership with the parish of St Anne’s and St James to help upgrade and improve aspects of the church itself and the grounds. Over the course of 2021 and 2022 we will be working with local people, users, visitors and the congregation to make much needed improvements which will allow the church building to stay open for use, especially in the winter months. The improvements we will be concentrating on are the following priorities that have been identified:

  • Replacement of the old boiler and heating system, parts for which are becoming harder and harder to source for repairs
  • Replacement of the failed mechanism in the clock tower
  • Repair to the Lych Gates that are currently rotting
  • Repair some of the stained glass windows

Some informal consultation has been carried out with the congregation and other users of the church. We will be launching some wider consultation in the coming weeks which will capture what local people, visitors, users of the church and the congregation alike would like to see in the suggested improvements and will demonstrate the support for this stunning landmark on the edges of the West Pennine Moors. Please look out for the consultation opportunity and please pledge your support by giving your feedback and sharing with your contacts through social media.
