Save Our Font!

Mulbarton Church is home to many beautiful and ancient pieces of history. One piece in particular is in urgent need of repair, and without attention very soon, will be lost to us forever.

Our medieval font has stood in Mulbarton church for many centuries, and seen over 4000 parishioners go through its waters over so many decades. Certainly there will be a lot of families in Mulbarton today who will have fond memories of their loved ones being baptised in this font.

Various bodged repairs over the centuries have ended up causing more damage, and it is has almost reached the point of becoming irreparable, and presents something of a safety hazard.

The professional advice is that as it stands it is possible to make a good repair, which would give the font a lease of life for many more centuries. In order to preserve this precious piece of heritage for future generations, it is worthwhile doing that work - but it must be done soon.

We are appealing to the people of Mulbarton, to whom this heritage belongs, to help fund this urgent work.

£7,500 would be sufficient to repair it where it is.

£10,000 would enable us to do the basic repair, as well as repair the floor around it and possibly move the font slightly closer to the door, to open a little more space for children at the back of church.

That might seem like a lot of money, but for a thousand years of service, that's only £10 per year at most, and perhaps only £1 per baptism.

Don't let us be the generation that allows this precious resource to crumble.
