Friday 16th December 2016 at 6.30pm 

Meeting in Thompson Village Hall to update the situation regarding St Martin's Church

You may have noticed that scaffolding has been erected at the front and back of the church. The Nave is also full of scaffolding, right up to roof height! This signals the beginning of the project to revitalise St Martin's church.

The scaffolding was put in place in November to allow detailed inspection of the fabric of the building, in particular to examine the roof timbers and upper parts of the walls of the Nave from inside and the ends of the roof timbers from outside. Alas, following that inspection, our professional advisors - architect, structural engineer etc - have said that the building should remain closed to the public for the time being.

In order to tell you more about this, what impact it may have on forthcoming events at the church, and to answer any questions you may have, we will hold a public meeting in the Village Hall, starting at 6.30pm on Friday 16th December. The meeting will be kept very short (about half an hour) and it is proposed that the carol singing planned for that evening might start with some singing at the Hall, before moving off around the village. Mince pies, mulled wine and hot chocolate will also be available.

 We would very much like to see you there!
