Work began on the repair of the roofing at the heritage listed St James' Church, Drysdale on Monday 11th September. St James is one of the oldest surviving buildings in Drysdale, being opened in 1872.

A Roof appeal fund is up and running to help fund the estimated $40,000 cost for this repair, and already we have received a generous donation of $500 from the Bellarine Historical Society.
