Criminal damage at St Mary’s has included one of the benches in the porch and decorative urns destroyed by vandals We are immensely grateful to Paul Widdrington Managing Director DSIS solutions, a local Lymm based company who have provided CCTV cameras at various locations around St Mary’s (including inside the porch) at no cost to the church.
Paul Widdrington Managing Director DSIS Solutions said “I took offence at hoodlums targeting St Marys and damaging a place of worship multiple times. We have family and friends laid to rest in the Church Yard which made it feel closer to home. It is sad that a mindless minority can cause these issues anywhere let alone a Church. Let’s hope the cameras deter any further vandalism”
Reverend Beverley Jameson Rector at St Mary’s Lymm said “ I cannot express my thanks and the thanks of everyone at St Mary’s highly enough to Paul and everyone at DSIS Solutions for this generous donation. To see our church damaged and disrespected was very distressing to our congregation and many members of the wider Lymm community. It also goes to show that the wonderful community of Lymm cares and supports one another. We have the appropriate faculty, other permissions and GDPR policies in place to record activity around the church and we will have evidence to pass onto the police should any future vandalism occur. However I pray that the presence of CCTV cameras around the church will deter any further problems”
