The PCC’s plans for an accessible toilet, small servery (sink, refrigerator), hearing loop etc., were submitted to the Exeter Diocese in January and we should have formal approval quite soon. The plans also include relocating our pipe organ (installed in the south aisle in front of the beautiful East window in 1887) to the rear of the nave; this might sound unusual, but in fact the organ will sound better! And we’ll get back the original chapel in the south aisle; a lovely space for private meditation or for small exhibitions etc. We’ll also be removing some more pews, the aim being to create some more social space in which we can hold small ‘hobby’ groups, or music events, or afternoon teas, or whatever we and you can think of……
