Church Tower Restoration
We are delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund has agreed to largely fund urgent work on the church tower. FOSMA are already working hard to show our support as a community for this project with assistance from the grants that the PCC has in hand. The following work has begun.
Erection of scaffolding to all four sides of the Tower to allow for masonry repairs, with a hoarding at the base. The work is to include rebuilding of the badly damaged eastern parapet and re-leading the parapet gutters, as well as isolated replacement stonework, piece repairs, repointing, repairs to the belfry louvres and replace two gargoyles. A conservator will carry out careful repairs to the carved cornice frieze. The downpipes will be overhauled and isolated glazing repairs carried out.
Stephen is to take up a new appointment as Associate Minister in the Ilmington Benefice. He and Jean will be living in the Rectory at Tredington, his licensing service will be on Thursday 15th November at 7.30 pm. All are welcome to attend this special service.
