It is supposed that several people have absented themselves from the Church lately on account of its and not being sufficiently warm. Complaints have reached the Churchwardens with regard to this. The church last Sunday was most comfortable as regards temperature and acknowledged to be so by some of those who had complained before.
The comfort, however, can only be obtained, under the existing circumstances, by great labour and watchfulness on the part of the Verger, and at considerable expense on each occasion.
It has been evident to the Churchwardens for some time past, that the present heating arrangements are insufficient and that the boiler is altogether unfit for its work, and that the whole system is faulty.
They were unwilling to put the congregation to the expense of such extensive alterations as are necessary until compelled to do so; but at last they have called in the services and expert engineer to point out what is faulty, and where additions may be made to the present system. His suggestions are now under consideration; but until the new work is carried out no trouble will be spared to make the Church sufficiently warm every Sunday.
