Good news! After five years of hard work and meticulous planning by the Glossop Parishes Maintenance Committee, and generous fundraising by parishioners, the plan that Fr Greg began five years ago to repair and improve the interior of St Mary Crowned is soon to turn into action.
Plans have been drawn up, tenders have been received, and the project has been approved by the Historic Churches Committee, who have granted a faculty for the work to begin.
It has been approved by the Diocesan Buildings and Sites Committee, and has gained permission from the Diocesan Trustees.
Since there is not enough money to do all the work at once, it will be done in two stages, and the first stage, of repairing and redecorating, may now begin as soon as the chosen contractors are ready to start.
Further news will follow later, but for now, let’s breathe a sigh of relief, thank God, and thank the people who have worked with such determination to save St Mary’s.
