GRANT from the NATIONAL CHURCHES TRUST for Polwarth Church






The National Churches Trust is delighted to support Polwarth Parish Church with a grant towards work under the Drennan Hall to deal with a rising water table causing water ingress. The work involves excavating the earth floor and putting in a sump below the foundation level where a pump will be located to drain water via a discharge pipe into a rainwater gulley.

The National Churches Trust (founded in 1953 as the Historic Churches Preservation Trust) is the national charity supporting church buildings of historic, architectural, and community value that are open for worship.

We receive no financial support from government or church authorities and rely on the support of people like you to carry out our work.
