Progress report – 8th September 2022
Progress continues to be slow. But there has been some -= the last wall memorials have been removed to make way for the mezzanine floor and the servery. At the same time the memorial to Bishop Godwyn was also removed from the vestry/ utility area wall and carefully wrapped and stored in the South porch.
The insulation has now been completed on the chancel floor and there is only the utility area still to be made ready for the underfloor heating and subsequent screeding. The bags of insulation are standing ready and the concrete This has to wait for the steel frame which was due to arrive at the start of this week, but delayed because it needed painting.
Although the building itself is closed, worship continues in The Cornerstone on Sundays (8am, 9.30 and 11.15) and on weekdays (Tuesday and Wednesday at 10 am and Thursday at 9 am) and the bell ringers have access to the tower.
There is still access to almost all the churchyard either through the lychgate in London Road or the double gate in Norreys Avenue. The memorials by The Cornerstone can be accessed from the Cornerstone south hall so long as that is not in use. The memorials by the vestry door can only be accessed by special arrangement, but this is not impossible: several people have done so already. Please contact the Parish office if you would like to visit one on a special day.
