Acle's Thatch Appeal

Acle St. Edmund: Thatch Appeal

Some people will be able to remember the south slope of the nave roof being rethatched in 1996.


It's now the turn of the north slope (dated c.1970) plus the sedge ridge, with repair and dressing of the south slope.

We are looking to raise £40,000     

– includes a contingency for any necessary work to the roof timbers once they are exposed.




We already have £2,600; the Church Council has allocated a further £7,500; we can get a grant for VAT of £2,200 – so we are 30% there.

As a Norfolk Broads church, it is fitting that this local landmark continues to be part-thatched.


Can you help us?


On-line donations:

Peoples Fundraising (preferred) (include "thatch" in the message)

Thank you!



February update: Thank you very much to all involved in Acle's Winter Beer Festival for the donation of £1825 - putting us one third of the way there!
