St Andrew's Church, Kirby Grindalythe has been chosen as the National & Regional Winner in English Heritage's Caring for Places of Worship Awards.

The Caring for Places of Worship Awards are English Heritage's way of recognising and paying special tribute to congregations across the country which have excelled in the various categories. These include their ability to mobilise volunteers, raise funds and keep their building in use against the odds - the threat of redundancy, for example.

The Trust would like to offer our most heartfelt congratulations on this most deserved award to all of those who have contibuted, and continue to contribute, to preserving St Andrew's.
