The PCC has accepted the tender from Elecsolon LLP to complete the renewal of the electrical and lighting systems throughout the whole church. Since the faculty has now arrived, discussions are in progress to arrange a date for the work to commence.
We have also been delighted to accept a grant from English Heritage under their Places of Worship Scheme. The grant which is for works on the roofs and the masonry of the church is in 2 stages. In the first stage we will receive £7,000 towards work estimated to cost £8,742 and in the second stage we have in ‘in-principle’ offer of £52,000 towards work estimated to cost £84,794. Although we still have a long way to go in order to raise the £200,00 needed to complete the whole of our Restoration and Renewal Project, it forms a very significant step forward.
