Lack of funding stalls Hebron Church restoration

Restoration efforts on the church in Hebron continue to be stalled until funding can be acquired to continue the project.

Bert Pomeroy is the Director of Communications with the Nunatsiavut Government.

He says that as of now, there are no definite plans for continuing renovations this season.

Funding for the work done to date was provided by the Atlantic Canadian Opportunities Agency and the provincial government.

The Nunatsiavut Government is looking to secure funds to continue the restoration efforts.

Pomeroy says most of the stabilization of the church has been carried out.

A small section of the roof still requires stabilization.

There are hopes that the stabilization will be finished this year.

He says that a business plan has been drafted which details the work left to do in the restoration of the national historic site.

Although renovations are not taking place, a family is still stationed at Hebron to continue monitoring the site.
