About the Cygnet Fundraising Project
Building a welcoming, safe space, where church and community meet
Saint Hugh’s Parish Church stands at the corner of Northampton Road and Granville Street, Market Harborough.Built in the 1940s it has been used for Christian worship and related church activities since it was first opened.
Consultation with the local neighbourhood has identified the need for a safe and welcoming space for the community to meet and help to tackle some of the issues in the area.
The Church community has decided to sell the nearby hall, with the sale proceeds being used to improve the main church building. The inside of the church will provide a large community space (bigger than the current hall), separated from the worship area by a movable glass screen. There will also be a smaller meeting room. The building will have a well-equipped commercial kitchen, accessible toilets and storage. The inside of the church will be also re-configured on the one level for ease of access.
Whilst the church is busy applying for grants, fundraising events are all necessary to raise the funds to make these changes happen. Social events have already taken place raising £2,000 in just a few weeks, but there is still a long way to go!
The Cygnet Project gets its name because the Church’s patron saint, St Hugh, is known to have had a swan as a pet. The Church is starting with a cygnet so that, over time, when the project is finished, it will have grown into a swan.
