We have reinstalled a beautifully restored window! You can see the before and after in the photos. What a difference! The second window will now be getting the same treatment. We thank JH Stained Glass of Bristol for their help on this work.
We will be getting a new drain dug very soon to help to dry out the kitchen and toilet.
In September 2018. Praise the Lord! We received a grant of £10,000 from the National Lottery for the first stage of our plan.
Whilst the room is currently closed for functions, if you wish to view it, it is generally open between 10am and 11.30am on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month or by arrangement with Anna Fox, Sarah Pettifer or Ruth Orriss.
Why are we undertaking this project?
The Churchroom at Weare is in need of major renovation and we are looking at an exciting project which will not only make it fully accessible, but also make it a hub for the whole Parish.
This Grade 2 listed building in the churchyard of St Gregory’s Church, in Weare was built 175 years ago as a school room. We hope to make it a fresh and accessible building for use by the whole community of Crook Peak Parish.
The problems that we are going to tackle include:-
1. No adequate disabled access.
2. No adequate emergency exits.
3. A single toilet that is only acessible through the kitchen and is exceedingly damp.
4. A kitchen that is not adequate to serve the size of the room.
5. Crumbling and draughty windows.
6. Walls that are lined with asbestos.
It could be a great venue for up to 60 people, close to the Rectory and St Gregory's Church. Ideal for funerals, baptisms and small weddings, as well as a range of meetings, events and parties and even children's work in the future.
If you have skills or talents that could help this project, please get in touch.
