The bare walls.....
The new kitchen wall & window Skips of Old Plaster
After just one week work has progressed well. The (damp) plaster all 2 skip loads of it, have been removed exposing the bare stone work. The kitchen wall has been moved about 1.5m the result certainly gives the impression of a significantly larger kitchen and the new doorway created on the kitchen's east wall.

The improvements planned for the CHURCH ROOM include the following:
- Flooring / Walls (damp proofing)
- Toilet facilities / grab rails
- Extended Kitchen / New Cooker
- Additional door (in the kitchen)
- Storage cupboards
- Hearing loop
- Notice boards
The day finally arrived, after 2 years of fund raising and planning, work was able to start on the refurbishment of the Church Room. As the following shots show the builder arrived, the electrician arrived and the portable loo - all essential items !!
It is expected that the work will take about 3 months to complete. We hope that this blog will provide updates as the work progresses.
Katie asked that to say a big thankyou here to our grant funders, namely:
Awards for All - a pot within the national lottery scheme(£10k)
Church and Community Fund (5k)
Open Gardens Fundraising
Church's own funds
Several generous donations from members of the community.
I would also add a HUGE THANK YOU to Katie herself for all her hard work in achieving the funding over the past 2 years and supportive Village Consultations - without which no renovation would have been possible.
