A project undertaken by the Friends of St Cyrs
I can’t believe it was three years ago that we considered creating a disabled access to our village church. How time flies? St Cyr’s suffers from being sited in an elevated position that requires. This requires steps to enter the churchyard, and yet more steps to enter the interior of the church. In consultation with representatives from the Diocese plans were drawn up and models made to illustrate a feasible solution.
We have come a long way since then. We reduced costs and refined the design. Now have a practical and attractive solution to the need.
We have used the time well by enjoying ourselves and raising money. To contribute to the cost of realising our dream. Thanks to all those people who have joined us at barn dances, safari suppers, open gardens and many more activities. We now have sufficient funds to move to the next stage.
We now have opens in a new windowplanning permission, that involves Historic England and have Building Control and a Faculty from the DAC.
Also, we now have secured quotes for the groundwork, electrics, plumbing, carpentry, ironwork, lifts, joinery. We want to try to employ local contractors wherever possible. Therefore most of the prices we have received have been from such people.
Then will have a definitive costing of the Project within the next few weeks. We will then advise everyone what funds we are seeking to raise to complete the work. Also, how we intend to raise those funds
At present The Friends of St Cyr’s are applying for grants to match our finances.
Thank you to all those generous villagers and friends for helping to make this ‘Open to All’ initiative possible.
