St John’s Church – Essential Building Repairs / Conservation
Our recent 5-yearly inspection revealed a large amount of erosion to the stonework, rainwater goods and some roof sections. We had already agreed a desire to find space for a toilet and somewhere to serve drinks and food to enable us to improve our hospitality, so we have embarked on a fairly ambitious project to meet these needs.
St John’s Church – Internal Improvements
Internal reconfiguration to include an all-ability toilet, a small kitchen / servery, and improved disability access.
St John’s Church – Re-hanging the Bells
The bellringers have identified several long-term problems with ringing in the tower which will be resolved by commissioning a new bell frame and restoring and rehanging the bells. The renovation and building work planned for both bells and church will be co-ordinated, but the bellringers are fundraising separately.
