Work is underway 20 March 2015
The earthquake strengthening work has commenced and there is a lot of scaffolding around the church. When the builders removed some of the roofing iron they discovered that the wood around the top of the concrete walls was rotten and needed to be replaced. There will now be a concrete band right around the walls and the roof will be anchored through this into the concrete wall below. They said they have seen very little active borer which is good.
