All Saints, Eyeworth receives funding to install a Compostable Toilet

8 Jul 2021, midnight

The PCC of All Saints, Eyeworth are thrilled to share that they have secured a grant of £9748 from the National Lottery Community Fund to install a fully accessible compostable toilet in the church grounds. As a church, we are committed to sharing God’s love with our local community and the provision of toilet facilities is an important step forward in our vision to lovingly restore and develop All Saints to meet the needs of our village.

The Reverend Matt Phillips, Priest-in-Charge of All Saints commented:

<em>‘I am absolutely delighted that we have secured funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to install a compostable toilet at All Saints within such a short time frame. As we’ve begun to restart services and events in the church grounds since Easter, it’s been exciting to see new people of all ages and stages of life joining with us to worship and engaging with other local residents. I’m confident that providing toilet and baby changing facilities will enable us to extend a much more inclusive welcome at our community events and enable All Saints to serve the local community for many more generations to come. Forward we go!’</em>

In the next few weeks, the PCC will be working closely with our quinquennial architect, David Llewellyn, who will help us to finalise the plans for the toilet and to seek the necessary permissions from the various authorities to proceed with the project. We hope that it won’t be long then before our toilet is installed, blessed and ready to be used by the local community.
