Church  Repairs  :  Phase  3

Three years ago, the parish embarked on a three-part plan to repair and refurbish our fine parish church. It is now time to undertake  Phase  3  of that plan.


The Architect’s Plans are on display at the main doors of the church, with an explanatory page attached. The architect has sent out the plans to contractors, inviting tenders for the work.
