Dalrymple Donaldson Funding Award : Gutters and Downpipe Repairs

Dalrymple-Donaldson crest

We are very happy to announce that the Dalrymple Donaldson Fund has awarded the Kirk £5,000 towards the costs of repairs to the leaking gutters above the Apse and also towards the conservation and repair of the rainwater downpipes. Both these items contribute to the water leaks inside the Kirk and the repair to these are vital to the health of the Kirk. These works are proposed for 2019 and we are finalising our solution for the Apse gutters.

Our thanks to the Dalrymple-Donaldson fund and its trustees for their support.

(More information about James Dalrymple and Professor Gordon Donaldson is available at this webpage.)
