At the PCC meeting on 13 July it was agreed to proceed with the boiler project following the grant of a Faculty from the DAC. The boilers will be situated on the north wall of the parish office. Tenders for the work will now be sought with a view to starting work in November and completion by Christmas.
A Faculty has also been granted for the Memorial Garden replanting, which will begin in October.
There has been no response from the DAC following their queries about the Clock project, but letters seeking sponsorship have been sent out locally. A Faculty application has been submitted for the hanging of the banner of ACM Sir Jock Kennedy, and it is hoped this can be installed by Remembrance Sunday.
Deanery matters included a report that the Deanery Eucharist on 7 July was attended by about 90 people. The NSPCC have moved their Christmas concert booking to Thursday 1 December to avoid late night shopping on Monday 5 December. Full minutes are available to view by the North Door at Oakham Church.
