Breathing new life into St Andrew's Blubberhouses
In 2015 the future of St Andrew's Blubberhouses was in doubt. Heavy expenditure on the roof was necessary. But at a public meeting in September 2015, there was a positive show of support from local people for keeping the church open.
The 'Friends of Blubberhouses Church' is a group dedicated to supporting the church by raising funds to allow the preservation and improvements to go ahead. And by arranging worship and other events the group is getting the community together to uphold the traditions of the church in Blubberhouses.
