Andy and his mate arrived promptly for 8.00am this morning and commenced the removal of the old South boiler. It has served the church and its people for well over thirty years but has cracked in two places and can no longer be used. It had to go.
Once it was removed, it was clear that it had also overheated, triggering the closure of one of the two sets of fire retardant shutters under the boiler.
We look forward to the installation of a more efficient modern boiler in its place. It would be excellent if it were ready to dedicate and (especially) use for our Patronal Festival on November 4th! Meanwhile we are relying for church heating entirely on the elderly North boiler.
The photo shows the old boiler being cut up for ease of transportation.
