Sponsoring a chair for Southwell Minster is perhaps no guarantee of a more comfortable sermon, but it will help replace the 1,000 wooden seats which over time have become depleted, and provide the opportunity to remember a loved one or an anniversary.
Two hundred new chairs, to be used in the front two blocks of the nave, have been commissioned by Treske Furniture of Thirsk. The chairs are being made in oak and will cost £200 each.
Individuals can purchase one or more of the chairs and it is also possible to include a dedication on chairs paid for in this way with a small plaque.
