Church Care + Maintenance  is an ongoing feature of parish life. It would be good to draw up a list of local contractors, electricians, plumbers, roofers and handymen on whom we could call, either on a voluntary or remunerated basis when repair work or larger scale projects were being considered.  Please contact Fr John or any member of the Fabric Team with contact details of any companies you might recommend. We are keen to support local enterprise whenever possible………for example….
Church Gates : Main Street entrance   over the years as vehicles have become larger, eg 4WD cars, delivery vans and hearses, access to the car park from the street has become increasingly difficult.  We propose to widen the gateway and are looking for a local contractor to undertake this work.
