St Mathews Church, Tay Street, Perth

Work has begun on a £250,000 project to protect the exterior of Perth’s St Matthew’s Church which is a prominent feature on the city’s waterfront. The funding came from grants of £101,000 from both the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Historic Environment Scotland plus £18,000 from the congregation and reclaimed VAT.  Local construction company One Call Ltd & Scaffolding contractor Perth Scaffolding  was successful in tendering for this.  The project aims to restore the stonework, rainwater facilities and stained glass work to ensure the preservation of the Tay Street church.
