Heating Project Update!

At last some good news. The Church has received a Faculty (which is the formal approval from the Diocesan Chancellor) to carry out the work to replace the present heating system. There were some conditions included within the Faculty, the most important of which concerned a question with regard to local planning permission for a listed building. This has now been resolved, thanks to very effective liaison between South Staffordshire Council and David Challinor, good and prompt co-operation by the Council, and guidance on process from Councillor Terry Mason.

The work will take place over a period of 4 weeks commencing on the 2nd October (Just in time!!). This is a time the heating contractor has available but also suits us as we could not do the work before that due to existing commitments within the Church in August and September including weddings, holiday club, harvest festival and the scarecrow festival. At present, following consultation with the installing company, we do not envisage too much disruption to our services weddings, baptisms and funerals. Companies that specialize in Church works are usually sensitive to our Parish needs. When the final schedules are revealed we will of course share the information we receive.

In brief, new boilers will be installed in the Vicar’s vestry and all the existing pipework around the church will be replaced. Much of the pipework will of the “finned” type which will contribute to the heating process. We are keeping the present radiators so the appearance of the church should be the same. The one exception is in the chancel area where new radiators will be fitted flushed with the chancel wall and the old radiators moved behind the curtains each side of the altar. With a more sophisticated control system, we anticipate that we will have a more efficient, effective and economic heating system for our Church.

One item of preparatory work relates to the relocation of the radiators in the chancel; to this end the initial removal will take place on July 27th ahead of the main work schedule.

‘Maureen’s Musings’

The VicarJuly 2017

I am writing this feeling somewhat pensive and more aware than ever just how precious life is.

The past couple of weeks have seen two major terrorist attacks in Manchester and London; and now we are watching in horror the aftermath of the deadly tower-block fire in North Kensington. And on a personal note, I found out the date today of a forthcoming operation on my knee: 15 July, all being well.

So it all goes to heighten awareness of just how fragile life can be and how we never know from one moment to another, what may be around the corner . . . Continue reading “Vicar’s page”
