Even though we may never need it, it’s good to know we’ve got it.
The new generator installed in the church earlier this year was put through it’s paces by the Parish Council in order to ensure that in the event of a major power cut, the Church will be able to act as a refuge for the community.
The generator was switched on and the test was a success. It means that we can be confident there is somewhere to go to keep warm and have a cup of tea with the lights on in the event of an emergency.
The generator was purchased as a result of the Parish Council obtaining a resilience grant from Scottish & Southern in 2016 which also paid for a defibrillator to be installed inside the church porch and various other emergency and first aid equipment.
