$300,000 To All Saints Church

June 18, 2018

All Saints Church will get $300,000 from Palmerston North ratepayers to help with its multi-million-dollar earthquake strengthening and enhancement project.

 

The historic, 104-year-old brick church has been closed since 2013, when it was assessed

as meeting just 3 per cent of new building standards.

 

The city council is set to pay $100,000 a year for each of the next three years into the $6-7 million preservation plan.

 

Senior parish priest and fundraising co-ordinator John Hornblow says he’s delighted and grateful for the contribution.

 

The council's commitment would be a critical cornerstone demonstrating community

support when it came to applying to government agencies and trusts for money.

 

But the downside of the allocation is that councillors have stripped a proposed $150,000 a year heritage incentive fund back to $50,000 for each of the next three years.
