The rain penetrates into Notre-Dame de l'Assomption, the church of Auvers-sur-Oise. The roof and the frame are in dire need of restoration. The building no longer provides sealing and remains very humid. In order to restore the roman church, painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1890, the association takes action to help the Town of Auvers to raise funds.
The municipality has launched a major restoration project for the church of Auvers. It includes restoration of all covers and timber structures..
The whole project will cost €600,000 : 40 % payed by the region, 20 % by the Department of Val-d'Oise, 20 % by the Town of Auvers. But €120,000 are to be found to finalize the budget. A public subscription is launched.
