Fundraising to freshen up century-old Presbyterian church

HAVING just spent $50,000 to restore their bell tower and to do some much needed work on the roof, it's fundraising time for the Lismore Presbyterian Church.

Completed in 1907, the bell tower was in need of a complete re-build if it is to have any chance of being around for another hundred years.

Church elder and volunteer Don Campbell said they have also taken the opportunity to seal all the leaks in the roof and do some repair work to the domes.

In order to pay for all this love on attention that has been lavished on the building, there will be a trash and treasure day held at the church on Friday, September 12, kicking off at 6.30am.

Then on Saturday, September 13 from 8am to 3pm they will be holding their annual Spring Fair.

There will be flower decorations and an organists playing inside the church, as well as two screens showing the history of the church.

There will be a jumping castle and kids' activities.
