The Decoration Begins!

Progress Report on the Church Development 

  • Monday 25th and Tuesday26th – scaffold erected (to be completed on Thursday afternoon).
  • Wednesday 27th – decorators in – undercoating white paintwork around the windows.  Heat on to dry the paint but succeeded in drying the wooden planks on the scaffolding – walls and windows wringing wet and a very interesting odour in the church!!
