We have had notification from the OCS (Old Church School Committee) that urgent building works need to be carried out to the roof over- looking the garden area at the pre-school. This work is absolutely necessary and cannot be left. Building Contractors have been engaged and we have been assured that all reasonable care will be taken to ensure the safety of the children attending pre-school.
Scaffolding will have to be erected in the garden, but this will be made secure. Details of actual works will be given in more detail in early March, but the following points are already known at this stage.
1. It will be necessary to close part of the Car Park to all users for the duration of the works. This should only affect staff as all parents/carers are asked to use the Rosary Car Park.
2. There will be scaffolding in situ (completely protected) at the rear in the vicinity of the works area.
3. The works are estimated to take approximately six weeks and commence mid-March. This hopefully will include the Easter break.
4. We will be able to use the garden area, only a small area will be out of bounds and, as always, the whole area will be closely supervised. Please rest assured that every effort will be made to keep children safe when using the garden area whilst these essential works are being carried out.
As soon as we have further information we will inform everyone immediately.
