We hope that work will soon start on converting the ground floor and basement of the Choir House into The St Edward Centre – the full size plans are displayed in church and you are more than welcome to come and look at them.
The outside of this beautiful building will remain the same, it is the inside that is changing.
On the ground floor will be toilet facilities for use by all including those with disabilities and there will be baby changing facilities too.
The kitchen area is going to have a cooker and automatic water boiler, so no more boiling kettles for big events.
The stairs are going to be opened up to the basement area and there will also be a lift installed for easy access between the two floors.
Even though this is all being added there will still be room to hold meetings, refreshments after services, coffee mornings and events where we can provide hot food.
The basement area is it have office space for the Benefice Administrator and a second meeting area. There will also be a small kitchenette and a single toilet – [this will not have features for the disabled to use, as the toilet on the ground floor can be easily reached via the internal lift.
