Restoring St Andrew’s Church – The work finally begins!!
The Charmouth Changing Spaces team & the PCC of St Andrew’s are very pleased to announce that construction work has started to help restore the church to its former glory. This is a huge step forward & the team are busy planning the various phases of the work that will be required.
The first phase is to deliver a number of improvements to the North Porch & includes undertaking roof & stonework repairs, redecoration, new lighting and drainage. In addition, new internal glass doors will be installed to enhance the entrance. The ultimate goal of this phase of the project is to make it an inviting and accessible point of entry for the villagers and its visitors to enjoy the services and the regular events that take place.
During the work, the North Porch will not accessible and hence the temporary entrance will be via the Tower door. All efforts have been made to minimise the disruption to services and events. The work is expected to be completed by late Spring.
Finally, any endeavour of this type can only be delivered through collaborative working & effective team work. To that end, the PCC team have appointed a respected & experienced team comprising B2 Architects Ltd and Conservation Contractor Ellis & Co. We are all looking forward to this work being completed and helping the church move forward with its future restoration plans.
