Cash boost to help restore Jurby landmark

A vital cash injection from the Manx Lottery Trust is helping fund essential repairs to a landmark in the North of the Island.

The trust has donated £25,000 to The Friends of Jurby Church, a community group carrying out important restoration of the 200-year-old St Patrick's Church.

The unique stained glass window Saint Maughold, converted and baptised by Saint Patrick, has been restored, also being repaired is the East window of the Crucifixion as well as a plaque and two glass panels in the North porch.

Other efforts are also being carried out to make the structure more watertight, including fixing plain glass windows, the render and the rood where the tower meets the nave.

Sandra Kerrison, of The Friends of Jurby Church, says: "We’re immensely grateful to Manx Lottery Trust for its support. Last year we celebrated the building’s 200th anniversary and these essential works will be a great foundation for the next century and beyond."
