I have visited St Peter’s church many times over the years and have a
great admiration for the different aspects of its work for the people of
Nottingham and beyond. Visitors come to the church from many countries and
from many walks of life, enjoying its tranquillity amidst the bustle of a
vibrant city centre.
The church has been well maintained by the parish for many years but
the point has recently been reached at which major repairs to the
stonework are necessary and the cost of these is beyond the capacity of
the congregation to meet. The last appeal the church made to the wider
community was over 70 years ago!
The task of maintaining and preserving this ancient building in its
unique position in the city centre is vital for the community as a whole.
I am therefore very glad to have been asked to act at Patron of the Appeal
and I hope you will support it generously to help in ensuring its success.
