We now have everything in place to start putting water into St. Peter’s. The digger will start on Monday 14th March to dig a trench from the church gate to the West door. We will dig by hand from outside the West door across the Tower floor to the place where the water is required in church. We also have to dig an access for the water to the boiler house. In addition we have to construct a waste water pipe system to a soak away outside the West door.
Any offers of manual help would be appreciated. We plan to have a working party on Saturday morning 12th March to start the work-9.00am-12.00 noon. We will also be working each morning whilst the digger is at work, 14th, 15th, & 16th March. After this we will assess what if any further work needs to be done.
If you are able to help please come along to give a hand bringing your own tools if possible-pick & shovel.
Thanks for your support

It seems some of you are wondering about Keep Fit on a Tuesday evening at 7:30pm, but were concerned that it was aimed at the over 50s. Well you are absolutely right. If you feel that keeping up with us lot that climb Kilimanjaro and think a 26 mile walk is fun then we quite understand that you would be worried about joining us. And of course we quite understand that those of you who work would find it too much after a hard day. There is also the expense…..£1.50 for an hour.
