2019 will be the Sesquicentenary of St Anne’s Church. The Select Vestry has decided that one of the ways we will mark this significant anniversary will be the renovation and extension of our suite of halls. This work will actually begin in the next few months with Phase One which is the re-roofing of the halls at a cost of £100,000.
Phase Two will provide lift access from the car park to the same level as the church as well as new meeting rooms, youth lounge, storage, toilets and new parish office. We are in the planning phase at the moment and will soon have cost estimates from the quantity surveyor.
The halls have been an incredible blessing and resource for Drumglass Parish since they were built in 1973. We want to continue to have high quality and accessible halls that will stand the test of time as a superb resource for our Church.
Rest assured you will be hearing much, much more about the project.

Appeal for Squirrel/Beaver/Scout Leaders
We are strongly appealing for Squirrel and Beaver leaders. Urgent additional help is also needed to assist the Scout Leader, to enable new members to join the Scout Group. We may not be able to recommence in September without new leaders coming forward urgently.
