With all this activity the highly used car park was deteriorating fast and so a team of church volunteers set about patch repairing the surface. On starting the work they discovered that Church Road was about to be surface dressed and asked for a contact to see how much it would cost to surface dress the church car park. This resulted in Mr Kiely, owner of carriageway surface specialists Kiely Bros, very generously offering to surface dress the church car park free-of-charge as a good will gesture to the church and community of Wembdon. Kiely Bros have been the Surface Dressing Contractor for Somerset County Council’s Highways Department for the past 5 years.
Paul Hodge (Churchwarden) said,
“It’s amazing to see how God works (it was like a miracle) and everyone at the Church and Parish Centre would like to thank Mr Kiely for his generosity which will help us to continue serving the local community”.
We will also be having a number of special Christmas events in December and give a warm welcome to anyone who may wish to come along. You will be able to admire the newly surface dressed car park as well!
