A new coat of paint

18 Feb 14

It  was back in the 2006 that the PCC submitted an application to the diocese to request permission to paint the church interior when it was estimated the cost would be in the region of £10,000. (It had last been painted in 1982 at a cost of £1472). However events have intervened and the walls, some of which are now raw plaster, are still awaiting a coat of paint.

At a PCC meeting in 2014 it was agreed that we should now try to address this and plan to decorate the church. Whilst there are some funds available to do this work there are not sufficient. It was agreed that we try and raise £6,000 and as soon as this figure has been reached we will then obtain the necessary permissions and quotations to paint a grade II* listed building.

At the end of 2015 the PCC decided to again look at painting the church in 2016, but then the Vicar announced his intention to retire, the ensuing interregnum, with the added work load for the lay members of the congregation it was decided to delay for a bit longer.

This work has to be carried out in the summer months because of the type of paint that is required on the lime plaster, to enable it to breath. Any hit of frost would cause problems and using the heating would dry the paint too fast.  

It will be lovely to see the church particularly the interior looking at its best.
