Churchroom Renovation                    

Dec 2019

Praise the Lord! We have had another grant of £10,000 from the National Lottery Awards for All Fund! 

This means we can forge on with the next phase of the project. Our first priorty is to extend and upgrade the toilet to a fully accessible facility with grab rails and a nappy changing unit. This will mean a slightly smaller Servery, until the new building is built. We will also be replacing the west end window and planning for a new door and paths at the East end.

The room is now in use for Church functions and for public bookings again. 

If you wish to view inside the room, 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. For booking contact Anna Fox.

Why are we undertaking this project?

The Churchroom at Weare needed major renovation and we have been looking at an exciting project that 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.

Our next Event is a Quiz Night on Friday 13th March

Parish Flower Festival makes £1245! June 2019

We prayed for good weather, we prayed for people and we prayed for money and we got all three!!.

Weare Church full of beautiful flowers and around 200 visitors made this a fabulous weekend. It was made possible by many, many people across the United Parish working together. Thank you to every single person who made it such a success. 

Why are we undertaking this project?

The Churchroom at Weare was 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.

The problems that we are or have been tackling include:-

1. No adequate disabled access.

2. No adequate emergency exits.

3. A single toilet that is only acessible through the kitchen and was very damp.

4. A kitchen that is not adequate to serve the size of the room.

5. Crumbling and draughty windows.

6. Walls 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.
