The contractors Lloyd and Smith continue to make good progress with the team fully established on site. Unfortunately we had to restrict access to the church while the timber specialist were using chemicals prior to Easter. However normal service has resumed with church being used throughout Easter and still being beautifully decorated by the flower team.

Work Completed

The wall plate and roof beam ends have been treated.

The valley gutter between the two roofs has been rebuilt in timber and it will be ready for the stainless steel liner when the weather improves.

Re-slating the roof is delayed until the internal work in the chancel is complete.

In north aisle sections of wood have been replaced; others have been treated with preservative. This is almost complete, with re-plastering to follow.

In the chancel fifty percent of the roof beam ends are being replaced with new timber.

In the porch a frame has been added in preparation for doors being added.

We also have great news in the form of more funding where we have received a grant of £2,500 from the West Lancashire Freemasons.

We hope to do regular updates throughout the work. This will included regular Facebook posts, e-letters and
monthly reports. There is also more information about the roof project on our website.
