The project to convert the heating system from oil to gas, including the installation of a new boiler, has been completed.
The PCC is particularly grateful to Viridor Credits Environmental Company for their very generous grant that covered the cost of the work. Their generosity has been marked in a plaque above the boiler room door.
This is the second time that Viridor has
assisted the church, having made a large contribution towards the cost of re-roofing and redecorating the church.
