You will be pleased to have noticed that our exterior perimeter wall is in the process of being restored, thanks to the generosity of both The Friends of St Anne’s and the residual funds from the Tercentenary Appeal. Starting this week, work on replacing our ancient Victorian church heating system will begin. In the first few weeks this entails removing the old boiler and replacing it with two new boilers. In July and August the cast iron heating pipes in the church will be removed and replaced by a modern equivalent. Inevitably there will be some disruption to our Sunday worship as parts of the church will need to be closed off, but it is our intention to keep this to a minimum. The replacement heating is being funded from our designated reserves for this type of project. Your PCC allocates £1500 a month towards work of this nature.
