We are very excited to report that building work is now underway at The Synod Office. Work began to expand and update the office on Monday 2nd October. The old Sherwood Hall is being transformed into a large meeting room and two smaller rooms, while upstairs will also see changes. The Moderator's room, will be divided into two rooms, one for the Moderator and the other for the Moderator's P.A. This means that the current kitchen, which has also doubled up as the P.A.'s room, is now free to be a kitchen and staff room. It is hoped that the work will be completed in December.

We will post regular updates and photographs, to keep you posted as the work progresses.


Week 3

The building work continues to go well. As you will see from the pictures the partition walls are being put up to divide the hall into it's 3 main spaces. The outside canopy has now been taken down and the old sherwood hall cloakroom at the front of the building has been demolished.

Week 4

Work is progressing quickly and the layout is really taking shape. You will see that the partition walls are now being filled in and the old kitchen has been ripped out to make way for the new disabled accessible toilet.

Week 5

As you can see from the pictures, most of the internal walls are now up. The electricians have been in all week. The old ramp at the front of the building has now been demolished, ready for the new ramp to go in its place.

Week 6

This week the ceiling and walls have been insulated and boarded ready for plastering and the electrical first fix is completed, which means that all plug and light sockets have had the wiring put in place. Have a look at the week 6 gallery to see.

Week 7

This week the internal walls have all been plastered and are now ready for a first coat of paint. Today the digger has been in, preparing the way for the new ramp to be built, which wil give wheelchair access to the front door of the new synod meeting room.
