CATHEDRAL PARISH PARTNER'S REPORT :
Cathedral Maintenance – The cladding project on the seven bays is progressing well, improving the rainwater drainage from the roof and refurbishing the glass ingots set in concrete is in hand. These works should significantly reduce the water penetration into the buildings, all scaffolding should be removed by the end of the year.
Masonic Donation – At a recent evening service the Provincial Grand Master of Warwickshire Freemasons presented the Dean with a cheque for £5000 from the Warwickshire Masonic Charitable Association and a matched donation from the National Masonic Charitable Foundation. The £10,000 was part of an assured ongoing support of the Cathedral.
