As reported in the latest magazine (Winter/Spring 2013) we have now applied (as of late Jan 2013) for the full development funding for the Restoration Project. The architects have selected a contractor (not publicly released yet) and have negotiated the work and the price to fit the project. Heritage Lottery are now reviewing the application to confirm that the funds can be released.
We hope to be able to proceed in the next few weeks and months, leading to a watertight, stable, greatly improved building for our community and worship.
Fundraising continues: we have raised through grants, donations and fundraising, all but the last £4,000 required for the project. We will continue to apply for grants and fundraise as more work will be needed to complete the project and move onto further phases (such as heating, hearing loop and toilet provision).
