Farewell to David Jarratt
It was with great sadness that we said farewell to our Rector the Reverend Dr David Jarratt on Sunday 25 July. David is leaving us to take up a post at St Philip's Church in West Bromwich.
St Nicholas Church South Porch Consultation
Thank you to everyone who completed the survey and sent in comments about this proposal. The PCC were encouraged by the support shown for the project. They were also minded to take into account the very useful points made in relation to the project not least in the timing of the proposal and also the workload that this would put on our churchwardens during an interregnum.
With this in mind, the PCC believes that the South Porch should become the main entrance once more. Work has already begun on clearing the space and solutions found for the storage of items currently in there. The necessary remedial work (mostly decorative) will be undertaken as per the last two quinquennial reports. Due to a kind offer of labour the cost of this should be minimal and should be able to progress in the near future.
It is hoped that these changes will also help to highlight any other practical considerations which could impact on future proposed works to the entrance area once it is in use.
The PCC would also like to thank Richard Whincop for the considerable time he has spent on this project and his imagination in finding solutions to the storage questions.
We very much look forward to being able to use the South Porch once more to provide a more accessible and welcoming entrance.
