The old boiler (No not her!)
On 23/03/2018 the water heating unit of our central heating system was delared to be no longer a going concern.
Installed in May 2005 it ran 99% of the time until 19/03/2018 when no amount of rebooting would bring it back on line.
It is extinct, non functional, a collection of off line artifacts, it doesn't work!!
You can guess my next words:-
If you want a warm Church, and we must have a heated Hall, then a replacement unit has to be installed and that will cost cash.
I will advise the PCC of the fitted cost of the new unit. John Sweetman is going on a Grant Hunt and we, the Congregations at St Andrews, must prayerfully consider how we may contribute to this needfull fund. Either as a direct "Gift Aided" donation or by organising a small fund raising event e.g. Coffee morning, Quiz, Afternoon entertainment. Pie and Poetry etc.
Discuss your ideas with the Social Committee to utilise their expertise in such matters.James.
