 Bardsley Youth Project Mini Restoration Needs Tools

Coventry Transport Museum donated a 1982 Mini to Bardlsey Youth Project from them to restore with the help of 6 young people from supported housing projects in the city.

They are currently setting up the workshop by building workstations, gathering tools and basically turning an empty room into a car garage. For this we have a small budget so are looking for donations of tools such as spanners, wrenches and any other equipment they can find.

If you have some unused tools that you would like to see put to good use please contact Simon Rée by calling 07943 688 760 or email him using the link below.

 Are you paying to much VAT for your church's energy?

Energy assessments of a number of churches in another Diocese have shown that many of them are paying VAT at 20% when they are entitled to pay at only 5%.

The Diocesan Environment Officer urges you to check this out. This might yield funds to replace old lighting with LEDs or to minimise draughts, the simplest ways to start reducing carbon costs.
