Harvest Appeal 2019

 
Special thanks to everyone who contributed to the Harvest Appeal this year which raised in excess €6,000. This fund serves to maintain the very special heritage we enjoy in Taney. This year, our collection was earmarked to replace existing bell-ringing ropes in the tower as they have been in use for many years now and are showing considerable wear and tear. The cost of replacing these is in the region of €2,000. We all love to hear the bells calling us to worship
Sunday by Sunday, and we thank the wonderful band of bell-ringers for their dedication to the ringing of the bells.

The Select Vestry has also been alerted of the need to replace the heating boiler in the Parish Centre. The current boiler has been in service since the opening of the Parish Centre 30 years ago. The Select Vestry Buildings’ sub-committee members are currently investigating the most cost effective way to replace the boiler, taking into account modern technology and options around renewable energy. It is estimated that this will cost in the region of €25,000 - €30,000. In preparation for this, it is hoped to build up a fund.

The Parish is very grateful for the support it receives for this and all our special efforts throughout the year.
