For a few months (Sept – Dec 2016) we had scaffolding on the outside of the chancel and the organ was under wraps but still playable. It was all cleared away in time for Christmas. Repairs to the chancel and north transept (organ chamber) roofs are now complete. Thanks to everyone involved in these projects, those who supported us in prayer and those who patiently put up with the disruption. Here are a few photos of the roof before, during and after.
This week the PCC reviewed the amount that we have donated to various charities during 2016. The total of £5,402.28 is fantastic – thank you to everyone involved! And this total does not include the Children’s Society boxes that so many of you have in your homes.
