Update on Heating – Asbestos

A significant amount of additional asbestos has been found underfloor in OLSM.It will cost £22850 + VAT to remove it.Removal will commence on Monday 14 October and will take two weeks, necessitating closure of the church until 25 October.On the plus side, a limited amount of work can be carried out on the ecclesiastical south side (transept on boiler house side) until the closure date, as this area has been cleared.Unfortunately, the church will be without a fully functioning heating system until the end of November although there may be partial heat before then.
