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 had £2,600; the Church Council has allocated a further £7,500.

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!



Late May update: Thank you to the following:-

  • Round Tower Churches Society  £3,000
  • Allchurches Trust  £1,500
  • Acle Parish Council  £1,000 plus the offer of a loan.

Unfortunately we are still £12,600 short,
with only one grant application outstanding.

Can you help with a donation?

April update: Thank you to Norfolk Churches Trust for the promise of a £3,000 grant.
We are now halfway to our total!

However, Coronavirus has severely affected our fundraising plans; on-line donations (above) would be particularly welcome. We don't want to have to defer the work and risk another winter.

February update: Thank you very much to all involved in Acle's Winter Beer Festival for the donation of £1,825 - putting us one third of the way there!
