A mixture of 1861 rust and 1980s B&Q: church fundraising for new gates


The Parish of Wanstead is raising money to replace the gates on the north porch of Christ Church.

“The gates are a mixture of 1861 rust and 1980s B&Q! The original gates were too low, so at some point, a set of garden gates were added and the whole thing looks poor. We want to commission new gates, which will provide a beautiful entrance whilst dissuading antisocial behaviour in the porch. Perhaps you would like to donate to this project in memory of a loved one,” said Revd James Gilder.
