Pew Left Standing

Another great job provided by The Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix. We were approached by Darren Byford on behalf of Father Christopher about the possibility of refurbishing the two benches on St Peter’s Church forecourt in Horbury. Three members stepped forward and dismantled the benches on Wednesday, which could only be described as an act of mallets. By the Friday the refurbishment was complete, which involved the removal of the degrading plastic coating on the frame, elimination of rust and repainting with Hammerite. The wooden seats and back were sanded down and needed no protection due to the natural properties of teak. They were then reinstalled looking better than new within 48 hours. Many thanks to all involved.
