2020 Annual Repor
The Sanctuary walls were redecorated after the replacement of the Statue of the Sacred Heart and the re-arrangement of the organ and the choir benches.
The upgrade of the church lights was competed by installing new fittings in the Sanctuary ceiling and the fittings above the Stations of the Cross around the Sanctuary area.
New shelves were erected in the area outside the Sacristy.
The leak in the roof above the outer door of the Sacristy was repaired and the damage caused to the wall was repainted.
The toilet in the new extension was fitted with all its sanitary ware & water heater and the door received a coat of white gloss paint.
The area for accommodating wheelchair users and children in pushchairs & prams was identified and marked with relevant signs. Announcements regarding this were made after all Masses at St Simon’s.
The original four members of the newly appointed Maintenance and Safety Group were joined by three new volunteers and everyone contributed to “recruit” other volunteers to offer their Time & Talents as First Aiders and as Evacuation Marshals at their individual Masses. This is ongoing and lists will be produced and displayed on the noticeboard in the porch as soon as possible.
