Thoughts for the Month
In the January edition of Bosham Life, I mentioned that we are planning to extend slightly the boiler room, and more importantly to replace the boilers. We have now obtained planning permission, and I am pleased that both the Bosham Association and our Parish Council have supported our application.
We are currently going through the initial stages of obtaining a ‘faculty’ from the Chancellor of the Diocese for the proposed works. These works will enhance our Grade One Listed building and will make better use of the space.
We are very much hoping that work will begin soon, during the summer, so that we will have a warm church in time for the winter months. It is estimated that the cost of the works will be in the region of £60,000-£70,000, although we are awaiting initial quotations at the moment. Although the church does have some funds towards this cost, we will be relying upon your generosity in order to make the project a reality.
If you would like to know more about how you can support this project, please do not hesitate to contact me, the churchwardens or our Honorary Treasurer.
Thank you for your support,
With every good wish, Martin
