Tenner a Tile for new church roof

A CAMPAIGN is being launched this month to save one of Portishead’s historic buildings.

As St Nicholas Church celebrates its centenary this year, church leaders are appealing to the whole community to get involved in preserving the former Nautical School chapel to ensure it remains in use for future generations.

Structural reports show that if the building is to remain operational it needs a completely new roof.

Diane Bridgwater, a spokesperson for the church said: “We are hoping the whole community will come together to help save this landmark building by buying a tile for �10.”

The Tenner a Tile campaign asks for people to buy a tile and all contributors will have their names entered into a special book the church is putting together.
