Falmouth Packet: Truro Cathedral to share pot of WWI repairs cash Truro Cathedral to share pot of WWI repairs cash

Truro Cathedral is to share a pot of cash from from the World War One Centenary Repairs Fund to repair damage caused by the raging storms this winter.

The cathedral will receive £50,000 from the fund, announced by the chancellor in the 2014 budget, to enable cathedrals to "undertake urgent repair work" in advance of the WW1 commemorations.

Nationally 22 buildings will use the cash to fix leaking roofs, repair stained windows and replace stonework, with Culture Secretary Sajid Javid saying it was to "preserve these magnificent buildings for future generations".

Chair of the fund Sir Paul Ruddock said: "Spanning over 1,000 years of architectural history and housing many treasures, English cathedrals are a hugely important part of England's heritage."

There will be two further rounds of funding.
