The day we thought would never happen is almost upon us. The new roof contract is due to start in the next couple of weeks. The contractors have indicated that work will start shortly with the placing of a bat box in the trees in the Churchyard followed by the erection of scaffolding outside the Church. The scaffolding will be covered with sheeting so that it can't be accessed from the outside and there will be no scaffolding inside the Church. Services during the works should not be affected and the work should be completed by the end of October.
