A hot summer evening, 5th July, saw the launch of the HLF repairs project at St Michael’s, with more than 50 people coming along to find out more, enjoy a drink and something to eat, and to see inside the church for the last time before the long awaited repair works started.
Fred Hamer of RRA Architects, supported by Archdeacon of Hereford Paddy Benson, showed people of all ages around the church, explaining the repairs programme and sharing thoughts on the future of the building and The Daily Bread Project.
Work started at the end of July, with Splitlath, our main works contractor setting up their site, where they will be for the next 6-7 months.
Heritage Activity Plan
As part of the HLF grant we will be undertaking a number of community based projects, including researching and learning more about the history of the church, a medieval Grade II* Listed building that has been at the heart of the village for 800 years.
If you would like to get involved please get in touch. We are looking for people of all ages, people who have some local heritage knowledge and people who know nothing but would like to know more about the history of where they live.
We will be developing leaflets and website content to share so if you have creative writing skills we would also like to hear from you.
The Daily Bread Project
We have recently launched our new website www.thedailybread.org.uk – more information will be added as the project progresses. We will also keep you up to date via Facebook Brampton Abbots Church Regeneration Group page.
We are currently working with RRA Architects to see how best to fit the proposed bakery in to the space available. We are also starting our search for a baker to work with us and help develop the plans further.
If you would like to find out more about either the repairs works or The Daily Bread project please contact Sam Hine, Project Manager, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07974 772840.
