Church Damage May Total £1,000 - 12th October 1962
Emergency Repairs On Lundy
Between £700 and £1,000 worth of damage was caused to Lundy church following the exceptionally high winds of a fortnight ago.
On Saturday builders went to the island in the Lundy Gannet to carry out emergency repairs to the east end window (which, in fact, faces south), part of which has crumbled away. But the Vicar of Appledore and priese-in-charge of Lundy (Rev Royston Dixon) considers that these repairs which will cost in the region of £200-£300, will be sufficient to last for several years.
