After many hours work, the PCC completed the planned project objectives this summer.
This followed the PCC’s successful application for a grant to support St Andrew’s in 2020. Like many others, this need arose as a result of the impact of the pandemic on the future sustainability and accessibility of our heritage building. Since the announcement of the award from the Culture Recovery Fund, we developed a one way heritage tour route around the church to enable us to open safely at a time of social distancing and other pandemic related restrictions.
Through lockdowns and beyond, the team worked on developing our heritage information and produced both a recyclable paper guide and a pioneering free digital tour that can be accessed by visitors on their smartphones and tablets via the church’s own info-point system inside the church. The development of this new website was the final piece of the project work and was launched in late August. Our thanks go to Dan Boys and Joseph Middleton of Info-Point and Lauren Treweek of Sandy Hut Media for their work, support and expertise, which helped us achieve our goals.
