And we're off . . . .!

Now you see it

And now you don't!

Do you remember the old Scout Hut?  Believe it or not it's now just over four years since the building was demolished.

After much deliberation and countless meetings, surveys, pulpit talks, flyers etc. etc. today saw the first concrete signs of the beginning of our Hall Annexe building project.

On a miserable, wet day, workmen were on site from 6am erecting hoarding to enclose the building site ensuring that the site is safe and complies with health and safety regulations.

It may not look very pretty but it is good to see something positive happening at last.

As they  say, in this case quite literally, 'watch this space'!


  1. Am I right in believing the scout hut was the original church which we bought and erected in the early 30s to save the journey to Belmont for our Sunday Mass ?

  2. Was the original church not the structure which later became the old parish hall before the existing hall was built? Can anyone shed any light on this please?

    1. Yes, you are right. It was just that. I remember the presbytery was built so close to it you hardly had room to walk in at the kitchen apologies.
