Litlington church welcomes new facilities

Like all churches, the last 12 months have been very strange for St Catherine’s Church, Litlington. However we have not been idle!

Having spent a great deal of time fundraising and applying for grants, our WC and Toilet project eventually started to get off the ground with the water and waste connection to the outside of the church installed in March 2020.

Internal plans were revised, permissions sought and granted, details finalised and eventually on 28th December 2020 work started on the installation of the long-awaited toilet and kitchen area. Since then, volunteers from the church have worked daily, assisted by contractors for the heating, electrical work and carpentry.

The work is now almost complete and so it is with much gratitude that we thank all those from Litlington and surrounding areas who donated to this project. It has been in the planning since 2015 and at times seemed to be out of our reach as the costs kept rising.

Thanks in particular to Steve Fisher (and his wife Debbie) who took on the bulk of the work and to those who assisted him (especially Jonathan Baynes), we have managed to complete this project with the funds we had available. We look forward to the time we can open up the church beyond Sunday services and welcome people back with our new and much improved facilities. Sue Jenkins
