St Mary's Church

You may have noticed that some external work has started at St Mary's Church in Haddenham, with the removal of the brick drainage channel around the chancel, which is to be replaced with a new soakaway.
The job will probably take about two weeks.
Then, on Monday 12th September, internal work on the damp plaster of the north and east walls of the chancel will be starting. As this means removing two radiators, the heating will not be on until it is completed in about three weeks.
There will be some rearrangements affecting the chancel's use during this period, as the rear part of the chancel will not be available. The essential work in the chancel will be followed by some work on the tower stonework and louvres.
Cable ... wot cable?!
Unfortunately, during the early stages of the work to create a new soakaway, the contractors disturbed and damaged the underground electric cable that serves the floodlights, tripping out the church electrics ... 'ow woz I to know, guv?!
At present the floodlights cannot be used, because of the damage. It may take some time for this to be sorted out, so in the meantime the church floodlights will not be in use.
