DAC ScheduleWe are currently seeking permission from the St Albans Diocese to replace the cloudy and yellowed plastic panels that currently protect most of our Church windows. The plan is to replace them with steel mesh panels (as has already been done with the large west window if you would like to see what they look like).

As part of getting permission to do the work from the Diocese (called a Faculty), we are required to publish the relevant documents, pictures etc where they can be easily seen by members of the public. This includes this website, so here is a link to the document.
