Set in Stone Moves into Phase 1 Bidding Stage

Five different masonry firms, all specialists in historic stonework repair, gathered at the church to examine the daunting task of repairing the church stonework. Phase 1 of this extensive project, funded by the Robinson-Broadhurst Foundation, focuses on the front entrance and quelling the water seepage that has accelerated plaster deterioration in the interior archway. The firms will be submitting their bids for work within the week, and UUCW will be awarding the contract to one of the masons this month. Ideally, you should be seeing scaffolding and work beginning in earnest later this month before the weather gets too cold.
