Ripon Cathedral

The Dean of Ripon Cathedral, Dean John, has put together development plans for a 21st century Yorkshire cathedral. The plans, re-submitted this month, aim to upgrade and enhance the cathedral and also benefit the wider community.

Julian Smith has attended a fundraising event at the Cathedral, he wrote a letter of support for the cathedral’s application to the Northern Cultural Regeneration Fund and Heritage Lottery Fund and he is in discussion with the Chairman of the Heritage Lottery Fund in support of Ripon Cathedral’s lottery application.

Julian Smith said: ‘I am doing everything I can to support Dean John with his plans to improve the cathedral. The cathedral is a magnificent building and a significant cultural and historic asset to the Ripon community.’
