Sustead Church Building Project
We are immensely grateful to those who have given so much and worked so hard to allow us to get to this stage. We are re-roofing the chancel and attending to drainage from the roof. The work is planned to start at the beginning of April. When it does start the chancel will be shut off from use, but the rest of the church will be open every day as usual. Services should be held as usual. Visitors will be welcome.
The builders indicated that they would start work on 19th March. That stage will involve the erection of scaffolding around the east end of the church to allow access to the roof to attend to the guttering. Drainage work will also be undertaken at this time. The builders would move inside just after Easter, erecting a plastic curtain across the church to minimise the spread of dust. They will renovate the chancel roof at this stage.
The timing of the chancel roof had to be carefully timed in order to conform to the bat regulations. From the picture below (dated 18 April 2018) you can see that the installation of the new roof is proceeding.
More details will be published as the work progresses.
While we have received much financial support for this work, there is still scope to give to this work. If you would like more details of how you can get involved, please contact one of our Church wardens, Priscilla (01263 577247) or Glenn (01263 768877).
Thank you for your support and patience.
