An update on our proposals for phase 2 - toilet extension

with access from the North aisle

Detailed plans and the specification were submitted to the Salisbury Diocesan Advisory Committee in February and the PCC has been informed that the proposals have been agreed “in principle”, subject to more information on the electrical works. This has been provided and when agreed public notices can be displayed, prior to the PCC applying for the Faculty. Copies of the detailed plans are on display in the church and please take the time to have a look at these final proposals, which were first envisaged as part of the church modernisation proposals some 4 years ago. Please contact Brian Wells on 01300 345434 if you have any queries. It is hoped to commence the works in March/April 2020 and the PCC are currently working on schemes for fundraising towards the cost of the works.
