St Mary’s Update


Those who have attended services at St Mary’s over the past months will have noticed that preparations for the installation of the wheelchair lift into the combined chapels are well under way. The discovery that there are two   heating pipes running through the area rather than one meant a lengthy correspondence with the manufacturers, an excavation that had to be much deeper than planned and considerably more concrete than we thought would be required. Thanks are due to Tony and Andrew for their help with the excavations, and to Adam for his expertise in providing the reinforcing for the concrete.  We hope that our part of the project will be complete by early June .


In respect of the toilet extension, we are waiting for information as to when the contractors will arrive on site. Given the excellent weather we have been experiencing that is very frustrating. Ideally we want to have the work  completed by the time of Bishop Libby’s visit on 28th October.
