Gareth Morris has been looking into this problem for us. On 16 August, three trial pits were dug in Morrison’s car park in an attempt to discover the cause of the subsidence. A drain survey was also carried out. We were hoping that this would reveal something out of the ordinary but were disappointed. The cause of the subsidence remains a mystery and no damage was found in the drains.

Where now?

The structural surveyor was present and will send his report after having reviewed the evidence and sought opinions from his colleagues. Our Church Architect is also involved. All we can do
now is await the advice of the experts.

Do please keep this issue in your prayers. The gap between the skirting board and the floor is not getting any smaller.
