Improvement Projects at the church

Heating in the Church Room
We have applied for permission to install and Air Source Heat Pump in our church room to replace the current out of date and inefficient system.  The application has been processed by the DAC and we now display the Public Notice in the South Porch and Lychgate for people to have the chance to object to this project.  The period ends on the 31st Jan 2022 and the Public Notice can be viewed on the link below.

Heating in the church
We have also applied to replace current oil fed, 60 plus year old boiler in the crypt with a gas fired condensing boiler with plate heat exchanger.  Again we await approval from the DAC.

Re-using the churchyard for new burials.
The churchyard is nearly full now and we need to make more space available for the future.  Several years ago a further piece of land was acquired to extend the churchyard but because of various restrictive covenants it is not available for burials at the moment.  An application has been made to the DAC to reuse the spare space we have in the current churchyard which has now passed their committee stage and we await for final approval.  LATEST news, delighted to say that the application has now been approved and we can make use of the current space.

Watching our window being repaired
Now back with us and looking fantastic the window has been reinstated and there is no more leaking water into the wall.  We now wait for the wall to dry out before assessing the repair work needed to the plaster and decoration.
