TEMPORARY RE-ORDERING IN ST MARY’S CHURCH, SHREWTON
We have been given permission to temporarily remove 4 pews in the rear north aisle of the church, with a view to making a faculty application for their permanent removal. The space would be left open, in order to make access to the Books of Remembrance more straightforward. We have just put into the church 24 chairs- again for a trial period of 6 weeks-which could be used at any big service or event where additional seating is required. Please let us know if you have any comments during the course of this trial. Thank you.
