Refurbishment Works and Re-ordering


Latest News - 9th May 2018


The PCC is pleased to give an update to keep all parishoners and local people informed as to how matters are progressing


Faculty Applications (similar to planning permission) were submitted for all parts of the proposed works on 29th November 2017.


On 16th April 2018 the first Faculty was granted which permits the installation of the new heating system and the removal of the pews from the side aisles (these are now for sale to help raise funds).


Following receipt of the Faculty orders were placed for the new incoming 3 phase electricity supply and the heating.


On 3rd May 2018, Western Power installed the supply so that part of the work is now complete.


The contractor for the heating and re-wiring is commencing work on 15th May and the installation is scheduled to take 4 weeks. During this time Sunday services will continue as normal but the Wednesday services will be held across the road in The Lion!!

Examples of the 'chandelier heating' as installed in another church.


St Nicholas Church will be a warmer place next winter!

Following the Solemn High Mass a open meeting was held to enable the PCC to present the plans for the general re-ordering of St Nicholas Church. This includes a new heating system, kitchen, vestry and re-ordering of the area around the west door. The plans were widely accepted by those present. Timing of the work will be very much dependant on the availability of funds but it is envisaged that certain works can commence immediately the relevant permissions have been obtained
