church car park to close for major refurbishment
Our Lady and The English Martyrs church is having a major refurbishment
of its car park at the end of this month.
'round church' in Highbridge Road will see the area around the building
flattened and re-tarmacked.
present site has not been re-laid for over 30 years and has many
potholes plus the raised concrete foundations of the old temporary
Youth Club building.
well as parishioners, the Car Park is used by community groups including
the Parkinsons UK local branch.
main users of the car park are the parents of pupils at St Joseph's
School, who have also contributed to the costs of the work.
told Burnham-on-Sea.com: "The car park, which is private, will
be closed from the afternoon of Sunday 23rd September until Sunday
will cause some disruption at school opening and closing times,
but unfortunately the work could not be carried out in holiday time.
The footpath, from Highbridge Road to Marine Drive, will be closed
from Wednesday until Friday of that week."
work is being funded with a grant from Viridor Credits Landfill
