When the committee from Queen’s Park asked for a meeting, MD Judith Tatham went along to meet with them. They had big plans for a kitchen to be installed inside the Church. Judith was well aware of fire risks and building regulations and asked Architect Ian McKinney who lived locally to take a look and come up with a proposal for the enclosure to the kitchen and servery.
There was a lot of commitment from some church members to get this up and running, so working together with the Architect taking care of the regulatory matters and acting as Project Manager for the Church, a turnkey job was achieved with the partitions put in and a fully functioning kitchen designed and installed with facilities for providing meals as well as doing the church flowers, and an open plan bright servery into the community hall. This church provides hot food to the community on Sundays and Tuesdays each week and runs a Coffee Club on a Thursday. The hall is very well booked and volunteers provide snacks and beverages.
When a job like this is completed, there is not only pride in the workmanship, but a satisfaction that what has been produced is going to be put to such worthwhile use.
