Work in the church tower and renovation of the clock has now begun and is expected to last until early spring 2017.  Scaffolding around the tower is in place but the main entrance is still accessible to church-users, with care.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but look forward to having a fully revised clock with new housing in the near future.
