Choir Vestry Works by “Dodger and Bodger Refurbishment Specialists”

A couple of weeks ago some suspicious characters (one of whom was masked and all tooled-up) skulked around for a bit and then gained entry into the choir vestry and set to work turning the place inside out and removing various items. Luckily their activities did not result in the church having to make another insurance claim; the motley crew comprised Steve Booth, Derek Griffin (ringleader), Leigh Bishop and Meridy Phillips (a gang from the choir - mug shots not available) who had determined to undertake some general cleaning, tidying and minor refurbishment works.

The plan went like clockwork and consisted of: Cleaning the walls (with a wire brush); Scraping off loose plaster; Cleaning the tops of the cupboards; Disposing of some bodies (sorry - rubbish)

Grateful thanks to Stella Read, the gang’s accomplice, who aided and abetted them admirably by procuring supplies of tea and coffee.

Phase II is currently being planned meticulously and might include painting– watch out for further alerts!

(Please contact the gang if you would like to arrange a contract with them).

    Andy Atkins, CEO of A Rocha UK the Christian based environmental charity which runs the green award scheme said: “Salisbury is the first diocese to be awarded Eco Diocese status and it's our very great pleasure to do so. When we launched Eco Church in 2016 we had high hopes and expectations. To have got this far so quickly is humbling, exciting and such a huge encouragement that so many churches in a diocese are working together to care for God's earth should be an encouragement to us all.”
