COMPLETED MAY 2017 – FRIENDS’ CONTRIBUTION £20,000
The cost of this major project was approximately £30,000 (figure subject to confirmation – Editor) to which ‘The Friends’ contributed £20,000, the balance being contributed by the Church’s own appeal fund. The project was co-ordinated and overseen by church member Geoff Sexton.
The work included re-rendering and making good a number of areas where the existing surface has begun to fail.
