We are pleased to announce that work on building the toilet extension at St Lucius' Church is scheduled to begin on August 10.
Several firms were invited to tender for the main contract. After scrutiny of the submissions, it was awarded to the Farnley Tyas company, Roebuck and Holmes.
This first stage of the project is due to be finished by the end of November.
The firm's craftsmen are experienced in ecclesiastical and heritage projects and have undertaken work at St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, London, and at Windsor Castle.
We are grateful to everyone in the congregation and the wider community whose generosity has enabled this important element of the development to proceed. Our appeal is not over, however.
Funds are still sought for further work in church which will include the provision of a new kitchen and the enhancement of the social space.
All the required permissions from Kirklees Council, the Diocese of Leeds and the Almondbury with Farnley Tyas Team Parish Council are in place.
An up-to-date plan of the proposed work, which will be carried out in stages, is available to download, below.
