Reward offered for church plate find

AN ANONYMOUS benefactor has offered a £100 reward for the safe return of an historic church plate.

The collection plate, inscribed with the name of the church, has gone missing from St Mary’s Church in East Barkwith.

The plate was last used at the 10am Communion Service on Sunday, November 20 and discovered missing when it was needed for the mid week Communion Service on the following Thursday.

It is of great historic value to the Parish and the Church of St Mary’s and if anyone has any information about the missing plate church wardens Mary Jordan or Richard Stamp would be pleased to hear from them.

Alternatively the church can be contacted via email at
