The Eldwick Church Building News

We are pleased to announce that we have now committed to go ahead with the building of the new Hall to the rear of Church.  We have awarded the building contract to MW & RF Brewster & Sons Ltd, based in Skipton, and are in the process of concluding the various legal arrangements with them as well as agreeing the detailed timetable of works.  We hope that works will commence towards the end of August.  Once contractors are on site, the work should take around 9 months to complete.

During the work, safety is paramount for the builders, the Hall users and the public.  Thus, once work starts, there will be no public vehicular access to the Church car park and the whole area will become a restricted site with safety fencing.  It is also likely that the on - road parking directly in front of church will be suspenced for the duration of the works, again for safety reasons.  Access to Church will be via the normal pedestrian pathway.  Access to the Church Hall will be clearly signed via a safe route around high fencing / hoarding which will separate pedestrians from the site works.

With limited parking in the village, it will be a challenging time.  Already, some of the groups which use our church hall on a regular basis are considering car share and mini-bus arrangements.

If you need to speak to anyone during the building process, please do contact Alan Brown, Chair of the Building Project Board on 07890 060063, Richard Arnold, Project Manager on 01535 272894, or Rev Peter Mayo Smith (details below) at any point.  You can also contact us through the Church Office on 01274 565079.  The office is usually manned Monday - Thursday mornings.
