Returning to Normality

May 23rd, 2019 by Andrew Whitehead

We’re pleased to say the the majority of our repairs project is now complete. Our completely rebuilt clerestory windows are now finished, and and the new rainwater downpipes are gradually appearing along the nave. What you can’t see is the new rainwater drainage system which is safely tucked away underground. The patches of new tarmac on the churchyard path show where two of our new rainwater soakaways have been installed.

The project is scheduled to be finished in August, and work will continue in the chancel until then. The rood screen remains underneath a protective box; we don’t want it to get damaged during the work! The organ is also wrapped up until we can be sure all the dust has settled.

Fantastic news for villagers is that the path through the churchyard is now re-opened, but as the work inside the building continues, the church remains closed to visitors, though we will soon reopen the church for Sunday services.

On Sunday 11th August at 10:30am there will be a service of celebration with the Bishop of Lynn, and this will be followed by a garden party in the churchyard – all are welcome.
