St Paul’s Methodist Church – update

COPY OF TEXT OF LETTER ISSUED TO PEOPLE ON DIVERSION ROUTE ON FRIDAY 1ST MARCH.  More copies will be distributed on a wider basis from Monday.

Any new information or updates I will share as soon as I can.

Following the partial collapse of the roof, the church is now set to begin dismantling the front elevation in order to make it safe and enable essential repairs.

Over the next few weeks, scaffolding will be put in place so that the necessary works can be undertaken.

So that work can take place safely, the road closure on Rochdale Road from Crompton Way to Collinge Street will remain in place.

Once work has started we will have a better understanding of how long the road closures and diversions will be in place and we will keep you updated via the council’s website and social media.

Please be assured that the closures will be reopened at the earliest opportunity.

The diversion is along Eastway, Beal Lane, Grains Road, Hillside Avenue and Buckstones Road.

Shaw Market will take place on Thursdays and all businesses are open as usual.
