Clock Appeal

Progress newsflash!!

We have more than reached our target and have been able to include an overhaul of the clock mechanism in the work which will shortly be getting underway.  The whole community has risen most generously to the challenge, and we are now looking forward to having the most beautiful clock faces in North Yorkshire!

The Appeal

2018 marks the 800th anniversary of the death of our patron saint – St Robert of Knaresborough – who died on 24th September, 1218.

To read more about our church and St Robert go to Home/Church history – or click here for the church history page

We aim to mark this milestone date by renovating the church clock – and particularly its dilapidated faces, which are used by the entire community and not just church-goers. To this end an appeal was launched and you can read more about it by clicking on the clock appeal leaflet here.

Now that our target has been reached, the appeal has been closed.  If you would like to see details of the donations raised you can do so by clicking here to go to the donation page

We are hoping that work on the clock will start in or before early July; when completed, there will be a formal Dedication Ceremony and more details of this will be available in due course.

We are thrilled at the success of the appeal both within the church family and in the wider community, and our grateful thanks go to all who have contributed.
