Charity Committee Completes Modernisation Project at St. Alban’s Church
St. Alban’s Church run a weekly Sunday Service and regularly host parent and toddler groups but felt facilities at the Church were substandard to accommodate these groups. With no disabled toilets or baby changing facilities the Church was in desperate need for fit-for-purpose facilities to support and maintain community engagement.
Our Charity Committee offered to help solve these problems by improving and revamping the facilities. Our team quickly set about converting the old male toilet cubicles into a spacious disabled toilet and converting the female toilets into a modern unisex toilet with brand new sanitary ware. They also converted a redundant space into a functional baby changing unit so that parents attending the groups have a dedicated and private space to safely change their babies. The team also installed new flooring and new doors to the area, installed a new radiator and re-decorated the entire area providing a bright and airy space.
Liam Bradley, F P Hurley Charity Committee Member, comments:
“When we heard that St. Alban’s Church was struggling with substandard facilities, we were extremely keen to offer our assistance. Modernising the Church’s facilities will help them increase their involvement with the local community in both providing community events, services and modern facilities. The improved facilities will undoubtedly ensure the Church is more accessible for all members of the congregation and the community that they serve. We were delighted to help support them”.
Members of the Church were thrilled with the new facilities. Jeff Jones, Member of the PCC at St. Alban’s Church, comments:
“ We are extremely grateful to Hurleys, who so generously and readily included our Church in their community action programme. The quality of the workmanship, the fixtures and fittings, the attention to detail and the attitude of the tradesmen was faultless. The project, overseen by Matthew Cook and Liam Bradley, has transformed the toilet facilities at the church and the members of the congregation are delighted that they are now in a position to offer the church building to the wider community – all thanks to Hurley’s generosity”.
