Appledore, Northam, Westward Ho!
Churches in the Community


St Margaret’s Church, Northam has received initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for urgent roof and ceiling repairs to improve the building for community use, it was announced today. The project aims to replace the majority of the ageing roof and ceiling to ensure the future of the church building, preserving its heritage and history and making it a warmer and more welcoming place to improve it as a centre for even more community activities.

Thanks to National Lottery players, development funding of £25,600 has been awarded to help St Margaret’s Church progress their plans to apply for a full grant at a later date.
