Church refurbishment hit by firm in administration
A £60,000 project to refurbish part of West Huntspill
Church has been hit by delays due to a building firm going into
month, Burnham-On-Sea.com first revealed here
that builder St Blaise had called in administrators, which caused
delays to Burnham's Marine Cove project.
The firm is also overseeing restoration work inside West Huntspill's
St Peter and All Hallows Church, which has also come to a halt.
Churchwarden Nigel Maddocks told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Unfortunately,
there is still a lot of work outstanding due to St Blaise going
"The work includes glassing the lady chapel and completing
the refurbishment of the church's north door."
He added: "The PCC (Parochial Church Council) is waiting
to see what develops. It's a matter of organising the remaining
work and getting it done."
