WREN Grant Press Release

Funding approved for restoration of Haworth’s Old School Room’s roof. The Brontë Spirit Charity, which is based in Haworth, West Yorkshire, are set to undertake vital repairs to one of the village’s landmark buildings thanks to a £44,873.00 grant from funding body WREN. The money, awarded by WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund, will be used to repair the badly-leaking original roofs of the Patrick Brontë-inspired Old School Room in Church Street, Haworth. Mrs Averil Kenyon, chairman of The Brontë Spirit, believes the restored facility will make a huge difference to the lives of people living in the area. She says: “This project will provide a real boost to the people of Haworth and its visitors. It’s fantastic that WREN has awarded us this money and we’re really looking forward to completing the very necessary repairs to the roofs at the west-end of the building.” WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund. Penny Beaumont, WREN’s grant manager for Yorkshire, says: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Haworth Old School Room Roof Repair Works project and pleased our funding will make such a difference to so many groups of people across Haworth. WREN is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that benefit local communities and we’re looking forward to this one having a positive impact very soon.” Mrs Kenyon hopes that the repairs to the now time-expired Victorian roof will be completed before the start of next winter.
