Get organised for 2017! Easy steps to organising your hall this year Print E-mail

A new year is a fantastic time to think about reorganising your church hall in preparation for any upcoming events you may be hosting in 2017. At Mogo Direct, supplying halls with practical folding chairs and tables along with other key furnishings is one of our primary specialities, so we have a great range of products that may be suitable for what you need.

Of course, the first step you’ll need to take is to thoroughly clear out and tidy your hall space. It’s very common for miscellaneous bits and pieces to accumulate in church halls, as there simply may not be a place for everything to be tidied away immediately. If you want to maximise your space and put it to good use, though, you need to tackle this. Get your clutter organised and packed into storage if necessary.

The appropriate use of a mild surface biocide is often all it takes to recover the original surface in a matter of days, the time it takes for the dead biofilm to disperse.

Finchley’s rose window blossoms once more Print E-mail

In the Summer of last year Essex-based stained glass restorers AuraVisions were engaged to repair a large rose window at Christ Church in North Finchley. The window was made by Clayton and Bell in around 1870 and sits high in the west gable of the church. It consists of eight large cinquefoils (five-leaved designs), eight spokes and eight outer triangles, plus a central quatrefoil (four-leaved) light.

The geometric vine pattern, with varied multi-coloured floral motifs, swirls around the window with handmade glasses, giving a sparkly and intense kaleidoscopic feel. The window was restored as part of a major project to repair the whole of the west wall of the church, which involved extensive repairs to the stonework and tracery.

Mr Dan O’Sullivan, NFRC Heritage Roof Master explains:

Roofing is a specialist industry, though unfortunately its all too common among non-professionals and some roofing contractors that mistakes are made and this can lead to costly problems. With over 19 years of experience we know that small errors can cause leaks, structural damage, and serious repairs and therefore particularly with conservation and heritage projects, you just can’t afford for such mistakes to be made.
