A bit of a cold reception in Bath Abbey for an update on the multi-million pound project to stabilise the church floor and improve facilities for staff and congregation.
However, this had nothing to do with the Project Director’s report but a lot to do with how cold it was for the large number of people who had come along to listen.
Alix Gilmer had good news about the first phase of the operation in that the east end should open again in time for Easter services so the congregation can move up to that part of the building so the floor can continue to be taken up elsewhere.
Ultimately the whole floor will be heated using energy from the hot spring near by with a little gas powered boost of air along special ducts – when it is needed.
After her presentation Alix stopped to talk to Bath Newseum.
