Burnham: Fundraisers continue efforts to restore old chapel
5:00pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in Local News
Fundraisers are still trying to secure a lease on an old chapel in their efforts to safeguard its future.
The Friends of Burnham Chapel had asked Maldon District Council if it would grant them a 99-year lease on the 19th century building.
With a long lease, they could try bidding for cash from more grant-making organisations.
The council’s finance and corporate services committee has offered a 30-year lease subject to the group becoming a registered charity.
Helen Elliott, chairman of the Friends, said they now hope to try to get 50 years.
