We are still awaiting the outcome of our petition for three Faculties – the Church permission to do various works in the church building or with church property. Firstly we hope to receive formal permission from the diocese to place the funerary helm and crest into the display case in the Tithe Barn – this was the recommendation of the Royal Armouries; secondly we want to dispose of one set of cast iron gates – they used to hang on the street, but when the road was widened the gates were removed and they have been in the boiler room ever since – over 40 years, and now the boiler room is a loo they are most definitely in the way; and thirdly and most importantly we are awaiting permission to pace the SugarNet digital equipment on the tower to provide good broadband coverage for the village.
