We have started fundraising for Phase 3 projects works in order to make the Community Space in St Helena even more comfortable and useful. We also need to keep the heating bills under control!
Firstly, we would like to install a glass and oak door as an outer door on the porch. This would cut down the draught hugely making the space more comfortably by keeping the heat in, and saving energy.
Secondly, we would like to install a ringing floor in the tower. This will reduce draught from the tower and reduce heat-loss through the tower. It will give the bell-ringers their own dedicated space which can be set up properly as a classroom and make ringing the bells a good deal easier. It will also release the space in the base of the tower for permanent storage without interfering with the bell ringers. Being able to use the whole of this space releases the cupboard in the hall to become a second lavatory.
Planning permission for St. Helena’s alterations etc. and all Faculties have been granted in full.
We have to work harder at our own village fundraising this time, as the SSCC also relies on village-generated funds to keep it running!
