Building works

As we seek to repair and develop our church space this is to update you on the works being done.

Our main project is the alteration to the Church Foyer, the fitting of three sets of doors, two replacing existing ones and the reorientation to the entrance and the installation of a glass screen and fitting of new doors. The present ones are far from disabled friendly and very hard to use if a buggy or pram or walker is being used. The new doors will be fully automatic.

Tuesday 31/03 – Leadbitter Glass now have the first payment to start work on the stained glass for the foyer entrance. Though work seems to have stopped, out of view work is going on, our three sets of doors are being made along with the stained glass. When work is started again it may well come together quite fast as, hopefully, things will be ready.

Thursday 26/03 – It comes as no surprise that the building work has almost stopped, much to our main contractors disappointment. Supplies are now hard to get and sub-contractors are cutting back.

Friday 20/03 – infilling then laying Damp proof and insulation board.

19/3 – Thursday – Digging out the old base, post box is going. New block work to bring level up.
