An Update on the Church Roof.

Plans are now well advanced to commence the reroofing of the Nave and Chancel. Subject to final permissions and tile selection by English Heritage, the reroofing will start on Monday July 4th. The completion date is now envisaged as the end of January 2012.

The work will be completed in two phases with the chancel repairs being completed first then a pause to allow for the bat maternity roost to naturally vacate the building during August. Additionally we have a previously planned wedding on 12th November which we must honour, so the phase two the chancel will start after Miss Polly Hardy has wed. This will ensure there is NO scaffolding visible for photographs. The roofers will then work in earnest throughout December and January to complete the Nave.

During this period all church services will take place as normal in Nocton, with the exception being they will be held in the Village Hall (by Bishop Tim's permission).
