A BUY-a-brick fundraiser is being launched to help pay for emergency chimney repairs at Harwich’s oldest building.

The Harwich Society is calling for donations towards the restoration work at Foresters, in Church Street, which has cost £5,000.

In January, the 15th century former pub, which is the history group’s base, lost its chimney stack during ongoing roof repairs.

Donations can be made at Foresters, 5 Church Street, Harwich and anyone who makes a donation is asked to include their name so a record can be kept of those whose generosity has helped to restore the building.
