Community Space Project, St Blaise Church, Milton

OHCT have provided the Community Space Project with a grant of £16,000.

The purpose of the Community Space Project is to change the interior layout of the church to create an open space with kitchen and toilet facilities for use by the wider community (“re-ordering” of the church). Proposed activities in the redesigned church include a craft fair, concerts, exercise classes, quizzes, a choir and a youth group.

Work started on Monday 20 February. The first phase of work was to remove the pews, excavate the floor to install under-floor heating and drainage, and then lay down a lime mortar screed ready for new stone slabs to be laid.
