If you've passed St John's recently you can't have missed the scaffolding which is covering much of the church at present. It's needed for our current work programme that will renovate the church and hall roofs to make them weather- and water-tight again, and that will fully restore the church's great west window, which has been behind internal scaffolding for five years or so since a piece of masonry fell. Our contractors are Pierra Ltd.
We've been able to fund all this thanks to many generous donations, some legacies, sustained fund-raising and three substantial grants we've received in the last few months from Viridor Credits, the National Churches Trust and the Garfield Weston Foundation. We're grateful for all this support and we look forward to the completion of the work by the end of March.
