Budget offers £20m for fund to repair cathedrals

Karl McCartney MP has welcomed new funding for cathedral repairs announced in the 2014 Budget. The grant scheme will provide £20 million towards grants for repairs to cathedrals.

 

Karl McCartney MP commented: ‘This is good news for all our cathedrals, including our own particularly beautiful Cathedral in my City of Lincoln, and will ensure we repair and preserve them appropriately across the Country.

 

‘Lincoln Cathedral is an important part of our community and brings people to our historic City now as it has done for many  centuries.  I will work with Lincoln Cathedral as I have done over the years as the City's Conservative Member of Parliament, and also with the community here in Lincoln, to make sure we maximise our benefit through this funding stream.’
