Three of our churches entered the Chelmsford DAC Design Awards Scheme2013. We are delighted that two were awarded Highly Commended, and one was awarded a Merit.
The large Grade II Listed church of St. John the Baptist, Leytonstone was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ for the redecoration work, including major repairs to stonework, plaster, windows, exterior and interior doors.
The beautiful Grade II Listed church, St. Mary the Virgin, Radwinter, was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ for the insertion of an all-person toilet, kitchenette, flower arranger’s sink, storage, repairs to Vestry cast-iron fireplace and alterations and repairs to windows.
The Church of All Saints, Great Chesterford was awarded a “Merit” for reordering to create a meeting room in the South East chapel area. The judges agreed ‘this was a successful reuse of wasted space with great thought given to relocating and glazing the screen in the church without removing it from the church altogether. Good attention to detail which enhances the building and provides much needed community facilities’.
