Sanctuary Lamp
Following the recent quinquennial insurance
inspec on during which the sanctuary lamp was
checked, we have been informed that the lamp is
unsafe and requires repairs cos ng approx.
£1,500. This has caused us to review the type and
posi on of the lamp. The Fabric Commi ee will be
recommending to the PCC that this be changed to a
wall lamp at a cost of approximately £600, which
will be a one‐off charge. For reasons of safety we
have been advised to remove the lamp un l we can
make this changeover. Please bear with us.
Help is urgently needed to clear vegeta on
between church and Scout den, to enable repairs to
the chancel to be carried out – date(s) to be
arranged. If you can help, please speak to John
