“Aura Conservation completed a repair and conservation work project (funded largely by the English Heritage/Heritage Lottery fund Repair Grant Scheme for Places of Worship in England). The work involved a number of specialist subcontractors and was well managed and completed to a satisfactory standard at a cost of £150,960. There was minimum disruption to the running of the church which remained in use throughout the contract.” Rebecca J Grimshaw - B.A. (Hons), B.Arch (Manc), RIBA, AABC
