Renovation work should recommence in June
The renovation work should recommence by the beginning of June. The stone slabs for the floors are on site, and work should continue on the new ramp in church. The new radiators have beem installed in ther north aisle, and if the weather is warm the heating can be turned off and the radiators connected and tested. The dusty building work should be complete soon, so please spare a thought for our small group of dedicated cleaners in their extremely difficult task of keeping Bourne Abbey clean during the building work. It will take a long time for all the airborne duct to settle.
We are awaiting the Archdeacon's Visitation when we take our oath as wardens and return the Articles of Enquiry. The questions covered a very wide range, one which might be considered frivolous was "on a cledar day, is Lincoln Cathedral visible from anywhere in your parish? This caused serious thought. It might be visible from an aeroplane's cockpit, but we think the answer is "no" - because according to the Diocesan website, Lincoln Cathedral can be seen from up to 25 miles away. Or isthere a hidden meaning?
Some more socail events will be held in June - details are included on the Pew Sheet on this website, in the magazine and on the church notice board. A gentle reminder - these are social events to meet old friends and to make new ones, they are not fund raisers!
