AN IMPORTANT PROJECT NEEDING FULL SUPPORT

For a long time the church officers have been thinking about the needs of the people and groups who use our church premises. As well as the Sunday congregation and the weekly church activities, a wide variety of community groups enjoy the use of these premises and it is good to think that many others may want to in the future. However, the premises are now showing their age, and what is required to meet the latest standards of access, safety and comfort mean that it is necessary to modernise and improve the accommodation and the facilities we can offer to the Shifnal community.
So a scheme has been devised to do just that and so we launch our appeal for what we have called  the -

TRINITY COMMUNITY PROJECT
The Church has just launched the scheme which will cost £435,000.
The main emphasis is the refurbishment of the main hall into a much better area for public use: the upgrading of the catering and hospitality arrangements for all kinds of functions: the separation of areas within the Church itself to cater for different size groups and with more effective lighting and heating.
Because it is a building for everyone, the front and rear entrances will be made accessible to people of every ability, as will new toilet and washroom facilities.
The overall project will cost around £435,000 including fees, VAT and contingencies - based on a figure produced by the architect.
of this figure some monies have already been secured.

We estimate that grants so far could raise £154,000, with other applications made to various Trust and charities we have hopes of raising a further £81,000. The balance is our own responsibility and so our target is approximately £200.000, an average of £2500 per member to be achieved if we have the support of friends of the church and members of the Shifnal community, because a successful project will bring great benefit to the whole of Shifnal.

This scheme is being revised at the moment and some remedial work has already been done, such as new windows in schoolroom.

The usual carnival teas will be served at Malcolm and Kathy Insall's garden in the Broadway and proceeds for Trinity Church. There was god support again for Carnival Teas and £318 was raised for Trinity Church repair fund. Thanks to all who supported.
