    Loyd tells us about the Churches Conservation Trust - a charity that looks after churches that are no longer used for regular worship and brings them back into the heart of the community.
    This weekend, the CCT will be hosting a Midsummer Tea Party in over 100 churches across England with Loyd Grossman (the Trust’s Chairman) encouraging everyone to ‘Bake to Save’ and explore their local historic church. The fundraising drive will allow people to support their local churches and give them the opportunity to discover their spine-tingling histories – events range from tea parties run by the Muslim community at All Souls Bolton, tours around the Shropshire church accidently blown up by Oliver Cromwell’s troops and churches left deserted by the plague.
