Great Coates progress
The village War Memorial has finally found a permanent home, and one at child eye-level. The fraught saga over several years hasn't helped anyone much, but it is good that it is visible to the public again and that its new home is a building in which some of those commemorated on it were educated.
Meanwhile, round the corner at St Nicolas', work is well under way on the south aisle, although it looks as if our ambitions to be back in the building for Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter is in doubt now that the roofers have discovered how extensive the work is which they need to do. A small bonus is that they have found and removed the wasps nest in the roof space which has given us problems over the last few years.
