Your churchwardens have started an operation clearing out the church. The West porch is now empty and can be used as emergency exit and as we know from previous years brides like to make their entrance this way. We no longer have to shift loads of boxes and other stuff to let them have their big moment.
The mortuary has been cleared of unusable items and junk. Racking has been put up to store items more efficiently and we will use this space to move more items from church to mortuary.
The children’s play area has been cleaned and sorted by Jessie and some more weeding will take place here. The choir vestry looks almost empty and is a much better space for it.
As a result we have a much better idea what we actually have and we have been able to keep items that are in good order in favour of some very tatty second and third versions we did not even know we had!
