On 11th June, work will finally begin on the West end of the Church to incorporate a long overdue disabled and refreshment tea/coffee facility.
The works are likely to take up to 2/3 months to complete, I am hoping to post photos to give a sense of progress and a timeline of achievement.
These were taken on the 8th June showing this part of the church (the black hole) which will be used for the building transformation, all tidy, ready for the countdown.
See you on the other side of the works.

Building works continue to go well.
In the toilet area, a heater has been put on the back of the gardeners stores and the toilet and basin are in together with a baby changing table, and we now have side and overhead lights
The Kitchen bit is mostly in and the sliding doors are in the process of being waxed.
I am told by the builder that we are almost there.
It's looking mighty fine.
We are finished
Yes you've read that right
(besides checking for snags )
We have completed our building project and we now have disabled and baby changing facilities and kitchen area for functions.
Today (30th July) was my last visit to take photos and hopefully they reflect the hard work and determination by everyone past and present but also for the generosity of these five charities, Marshalls Charity, All Churches Trust, The National Lottery Community Fund, Congregational and General Charitable Trust and the Garfield Weston Foundation all of which has gone into helping to get this built.
A new chapter for St Francis has begun
we did it
I would like to thank the builder for allowing me to take progress photos.
