CHURCH SERVICES ON SUNDAYS - The Rood Screen has been successfully moved to its new home in the Lady Chapel Arch: a perfect fit. The stone floor is progressing across the nave: drying out is taking time especially where the stones are laid on lime crete for ease of access. The stone floor has two layers of sealant with grouting in between. Work has now started on laying the matching tiles in the chancel: it is hard to tell the new tiles from the old. They are looking very beautiful. The under floor heating is laid in four sections in the nave. At least one section will be on each week and more as the work progresses. Thank you to the people who are or have offered to help with dusting and hoovering each week and thank you for everyone for your patience.
