Gas Main Installation update 20/12/2018
A new gas main is being installed to serve the households of Bidford-on-Avon. This installation has now reached our area and the parish has agreed to host the welfare unit on parish land- this unit holds lunch and bathroom facilities for the construction workers.
The work is due to continue for a couple of weeks before the works move on. The foreman believes this will be complete in early January.
Fr Garry Byrne has been in regular contact with the foreman and having discussed the position of the unit with some residents, this has been relocated.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused to residents, though hope you’ll agree that the gas works will be of great use to all in the surrounding area and beyond.
St Joseph the Worker is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, Registered Charity No. 234216.
