CHOIR RECRUITMENT

Could your son or daughter become a chorister in St Botolph’s Choir
Every year we are looking for boys and girls to join the Choir. We are recruiting both boys and girls from a younger age group (aged 7 onwards)
Being a chorister is demanding but fun. It involves a commitment of rehearsals after school (Tuesdays during term time) and services at weekends.
Choristers are given training in musical and vocal skills, and work to a professional standard in the Choir. There are many benefits of being a chorister. Boys and girls learn many life skills such as self-discipline, a sense of responsibility and teamwork, language, communication and social skills as well as musical and vocal skills. Their camaraderie, enjoyment of singing and professionalism motivate them and they are driven forward by a desire to become more and more proficient at their singing, and to take more and more responsibility for the sound of the Choir.

FLOOD UPDATE

Several meetings have been held to discuss the future heating options for St Botolph’s. There are three key areas which we need to address :

  1. Site of a new Boiler House. Our present boiler room does not comply with gas and building regulations and is considered a high flood risk. There are a few potential options.
  2. What type of energy source? The three key options are : gas, renewable (biomass) or ground source heat pump. We are keen to explore cost effective heating for the Church. Added to this, there are other issues that need to be worked through, namely, faculty permissions, planning permissions, approval from English Heritage and potential archaeological issues.
  3. The team is now looking at underfloor heating for the whole church.

Electrical work : The remedial work will start in mid-June and it should be completed towards the end of August. After this, the sound system will be replaced.

The Shop is now open daily. Mark Simmonds MP, opened the shop on Wednesday, 29 May
The Café is open daily.
