Spire project nearly finished

RENOVATION work being carried out on Shankill Parish Church is due to be completed by the end of the summer.

Work has been progressing steadily, with a significant amount of scaffolding coming down off the steeple last week.

Rev Geoff Wilson, rector of Shankill Parish, said: “The contractors informed me on Friday that the work will be completed on Friday, August 19. People in the town should be able to see the clock by the commencement of the July holidays.”

He added: “The contractors have done a marvellous job and I look forward to the work’s completion. I’m confident the church will look wonderful when it’s all over.”
