Tower Repairs:  2019

We’re delighted to announce that we now have Permission to Start from our funders and repair work on the Tower will commence shortly.

At the moment, the initial timetable looks like this:

Thursday, 26/07/2019 or

Friday, 27/07/2019

Contractors’ Portakabin arrives in the St J’s Car Park.  During this time, access to the car park will be severely limited;  please ensure all vehicles have been removed beforehand;  otherwise there may be delays in recovering them.  Car park space also likely to be restricted throughout the duration of the works.
Week commencing Monday, 29/07/2019 Scaffolding being erected.  Weather permitting, will be completed within the week.
Following weeks: Repair work starts.  Precise start and duration weather dependent, but we will keep everyone updated regularly.

Access to the church and hall will be maintained, though, inevitably, from time to time there may be some delays or inconvenience, and parking is likely to be more difficult.  Please, however, be patient;  this is a major, and fairly urgent, repair project, as well as offering improvements, when finished, to future generations, as well as ourselves.

For Health & Safety reasons, as well as providing the various contractors with a logical chain of command, please note that instructions etc can only be issued to any of the construction teams or their members by our Architect, Rebecca Cadie.  If you have any issues arising from the works, please do not attempt to approach contractors or their staff;  rather contact the Rector (01387 254126 / 07487 653069), our Sexton, Peter Johnson, or our Tower  Repairs Co-ordinator, Heather Gibbings.  Any of these can be approached in person or contacted via David Kerr on 07754 596140.

Thank you for your understanding.
