After more than 3 years in the planning, the major works finally started on the refurbishment of the Church building in July 2013. With the help of grants from the Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Scotland, the General Trustees’ Fabric Committee of the Church of Scotland, All churches Trust Ltd, The Baird Trust, Scottish Churches Architectural Heritage Trust, we were able to add to the funds raised by our own efforts and have this major refurbishment carried out. The works took about 24 weeks and ware completed at the end of December 2013. It included complete re-slating of the roof. We had been selling sponsor-a-slate certificates which raised over £200. Other works included the re-pointing of all the joints in the stonework, the replacement of worn out stone and the renewal of flashings throughout. And finally, the part that people see - the repainting of the walls with specialist breathable paint and the re-guilding of the clock face. With the church being an ‘A-Grade’ listed historic building, all the work had to be carried out by approved methods to bring it back to near it’s original state as possible. Specialist company LTM Group Ltd from Stirling were awarded the contract and the company have carried out similar work on many historic buildings. LTM were an excellent Company to work with and we can recommend them for any similar works elsewhere.
