Parish Building Group

The Parish Building Group oversees the maintenance and improvements of the church and grounds.

We currently have a major programme of work, firstly to bring the church and grounds into lline with Health & Safety legislation that we have recently become subject to and secondly to restore the church and grounds to their previous beauty.  Help is always apppreciated either on the group or ad-hoc assistance with particular tasks.

The members of the group are:
Bob Barron
George Ashton
Eric Crook
Frank Ashton

Mike Bryan
Steve Hardacre

Please contact these people personally or email property@stfrancisgoosnargh.org.uk if you feel you can help or wish to raise anything relevant.

Help needed

Major clearing and re-planting of the gardens has been completed but we need more help with the ongoing maintenance programme.

The church buildings have had much work to bring in line with Health & Safety, Fire safety and Electrical safety regulations but more maintenance is always needed in historical buildings such as ours.

Please do consider if you can assist in any way - it is entirely up to you how much time you wish to allocate and when.  It needn't be a long-term commitment if you don't wish it.


Skills we really need at the moment are:-
Gardening skills- weeding, pruning, hedgecutting  and other basic skills.  As with any garden continuous maintenance is required and the last Saturday of every month is a Church Gardening and Cleaning Day, when everyone is made welcome with refreshments and banter as well as work.  Bring your own tools if you wish but some are available.

DIY skills - there are many small jobs where basic DIY skills would be very helpful

If you have professional trade skills you could offer for free or reduced rates they would be particularly valuable.

Specific skills would be particularly welcome but a willing pair of hands are just as valuable and appreciated.
