Having recently celebrated Holy Easter week at S. Paul’s, much of the focus of the project has been to make provision and time for these church activities. Therefore the next month will see a return to the project and focus on moving steadily forward with this work. Discussions are now starting with the PCC and congregation that will set the tone and pace for a clear project plan, however this must happen progressively in order to build the support and foundations that will be required to take this forward. A project or steering team will be appointed in due course, while many more discussions will be required with stakeholders and wider community.
While we are working steadily on these project plans, the Tideway Tunnel works are also progressing. We had an incident with the vibration monitoring equipment and unfortunately there was heavy construction during this period, which now means a follow up survey will be required by Hirst Conservators in order to assess how this may have impacted the building. Over the next month the utility diversions will begin and are expected to last approximately 11 months. Starting along Coffey Street and moving along Deptford Church Street. The standard working hours, having been listed as 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturday. On the 19, 20, 21 April from 7am – 7pm.
