The replastering of the internal walls was finished in January 2019. We thank Dale Burford and Surebuild Ltd for their hard work. The electrics are sorted and we will be open for business in March! Thanks to every one who helped with the clean up on 9th Feb.
The new drain will reduce the damp in the kitchen and toilet. We thank the late Tony Bates, Aquablast and Jon Bethell for helping with this.
The second window will be back in early 2019. We thank JH Stained Glass of Bristol for their help on this work.

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.
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 tackling 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.
