!BATS!! - Update For Work On All Saints Church Roof - !BATS!!

Work has been stopped on the Church roof unti further notice. The P.C.C. have explained the situation as follows:-

“Well we managed to get most of the lead removed from the Church without problems until the contractors turned up for work last week and came across a solitary bat on the parapet. They immediately notified us and we in turn notified the ecologist expecting them to come and move the beast safely. Instead the bat flew off of its own accord

Because the bat discovered was of a different species from that specified on the bat licence, we are now having to await an amendment to the licence before we can even go on the roof to complete the works.

This will inevitably result in additional costs and there is a possibility that, should the ecologist not be able to get the amendment quickly, we could miss the window of opportunity to carry out the work before the bats - if indeed there are any - go into hibernation.

So we have a grade 1 listed building open to the elements because of one bat which may not even actually be using the Church as a roost. You may think this defies all common sense and you would not be alone. In the meantime the PCC is doing all it can to expedite the situation.”

Work On All Saints Church Roof Is Underway

Monday 11th has seen the start of the roof replacement on the South aisle of the church. Work has started with the erection of scaffolding on the outside of the Church and the placing of a site hut in the Churchyard.

The inside of the Church should not be affected so all services will remain as planned.

The recent spate of lead thefts means that we still need to be vigilant about unusual activity in or near the Church.
