Churchgoers in Wool delighted with new toilet facilities

CHURCHGOERS in Wool are delighted with the completion of a project to build new toilet facilities.
Holy Rood Church now has a disabled toilet and storeroom.
After 20 years’ planning, the bathroom and storeroom are housed in a purpose-designed building next to the church, which was officially opened earlier this month when the keys were handed over.
Reverend Rhona Floate, the priest in charge, thanked everyone who helped with the project.
She said: “We’re extremely grateful for all the support we’ve been given for this project, especially from Viridor Credits with their generous donation of £20,000 from the Landfill Community Fund.
“Without their help this building would not be here today.
“Having this new building will allow us to make greater use of the church for social functions and we will no longer have the embarrassment of telling visitors, especially for baptisms, weddings and funerals, that we don’t have a toilet.”
She added: “I would also like to thank the church’s architect, John Stark from the Crickmay Partnership and the builders A Hammond & Sons, represented today by James Chapman, for their expertise and patience.
“We have already had many compliments on the appearance of the new building and that is down to them.”
