In order that St John's Church can be used more for village functions, lighting will need to be installed.
Discussions have started with the Churches Conservation Trust as to the style and location of any lights that they are prepared to agree can the installed.
There are issues that need to be resolved mainly around the funding for any lighting. The Parish Council cannot by law pay for any upgrades or improvements to the facilities in St John's Church. This means that funds will either have to be found by the Churches Conservation Trust, Grant Funding applied for by the Churches Conservation Trust or from their reserves.
At least in the short term it is unlikely that funding will for lighting will be found as there are urgent repairs needed to the tower and the bell supporting timbers.
In addition there is water damage in the tower which will need addressing.
