As you can see from the photos, the font has now been moved to its new position. If you recall, the font has been for many years to the left as you go through the main door. However this would be in the way of the slope for disabled access to the toilets in the tower base, and so a very creative idea was to place it in the middle of the main aisle. As you can see it is perfect! We can’t believe that it’s not been there for 1000 years.
Around the font the pews will be replaced, but cut down so they provide adequate movement around the font – the gorgeous display for Christmas in the font is by Averille Milburn, our wonderfully talented flower expert.
You can see from the other photo that the circular seating has developed further, and that the heating has started to go in – there will be a fight for those seats in the winter (apart from this isn’t the normal worship space, but the new community space!)
Behind the right-hand seating is where the kitchenette will go, not much there at the moment apart from lots of electrical wiring.
We will keep you updated throughout the project . . .
