Slowly, slowly….

DSC_6859 DSC_6867Work is progressing slowly with the repairs to the church.   More of the fascia boards than we had hoped are having to be replaced, but a really good bit of news is that we have been given an Exclusion Order to try and keep our resident bat population out of the church.   A maternity box has been put up so that the bats can still breed, but are prevented from actually getting in to the building itself.

Cold, wet and windy weather has made life difficult for the workmen, but the bats have also been slow to wake up after their winter hibernation.   With any luck, the precautions taken to exclude them from the church have been put in place just in time to persuade them to move into the lovely warm bat box which has been on the exterior of the building awaiting occupation since 2008!
