    - by rootadmn

    Rope Trust

    We have recently been successful in obtaining a grant from the Rope Trust, who supports catholic churches and schools, to carry out some refurbishment work in the Presbytery and the Parish Centre. This work will take place from mid January until mid March.

    As part of this programme the Parish Centre will be closed from Monday 19th February for 4 to 6 weeks in order for a new Kitchen to be fitted, the floor to be sanded and re varnished and for the Hall to be decorated. During this period there will be no access to the hall or toilets at anytime. Your understanding and co-operation would be appreciated.
