St George's Church, Waterlooville - please help to repair an act of senseless vandalism


On April 21st 2017, in an entirely senseless act of vandalism, a person (or persons) entered St George’s Church in Waterlooville and smashed up the font and damaged the Paschal candle. 

The font is enormously important to the Church community. So many people in the church and wider local community have been baptised in it over the past decades. 

The Church is investigating the possibility, incredibly looking at the pictures, of repairing the font using a local stonemason. In addition they would like to install CCTV so that the church can stay open during the day - something they think is very important as so many people come into the church to pray, to light a candle for a loved one, or simply to sit quietly.

Please help if you can. Thank you.
