It seems I’ve upset some people by trying to explain why this little web project recording the repair of our earthquake-damaged church spire has ground to a halt. The reasons for the apparent discord between the church, the builders, the sub-contractors and the architects have nothing to do with me. And from my recent experience, I’d really like to keep it that way.
I’m not a church goer. My only interest is that I live opposite the church and love anything to do with local history. And since the church is our oldest building, and I build websites for a living, I thought it would be a good opportunity to combine a little work with a little pleasure.
I’ve removed the post in which I tried to explain the situation. In my defence, I would say that I approached both sides before putting the information on the website. But as my wife keeps telling me, subtlety and tact are not my strongest virtues. So perhaps I didn’t explain it as well as I might. For which I humbly apologise.
Richard the builder has kindly agreed to take some more photographs of the project, and I’ll hopefully post these in the next few days. In the meantime, if anyone wants to know why the spire repair seems to have slowed down recently, please DON’T ASK ME!
