A renewed commitment to the Marsh thanks to the Lottery Fund! - 06/05/22

We are pleased to announce that Lancaster Priory has received funding from the National Lottery Awards for All Community Fund for our work within the Marsh Community in the Parish.   We are thankful for the ongoing support of the community fund, which will enable us to continue to build on the hard work of Katie Schad, Priory Community Worker for the Marsh and extend this project to August 2023.

Katie has been hugely committed to the Marsh and supports a number of community groups that meet in the Community Centre as well as supporting individuals and families in the community.  She works alongside a team of dedicated volunteers from the community and from churches in the local area.

Current groups include: Coffee and Cake, the Marsh Community Choir, Mini Marshmallows (toddler and carer group) and a group for local blind people.  Katie is currently working towards the launch of a gardening club that will develop the community centre gardens and provide an activity to drawn in more people.

There is also a weekly prayer group that meets on zoom on a Tuesday morning, which supports Katie and all of those who volunteer on the Marsh.

If you would like to know more about any of the groups and activities on the Marsh, or about Lancaster Priory’s work in this area, or join us in praying for the flourishing of the people and community please contact Katie Schad.
