Fire Service Inspection

Responding to several complaints last weekend the Scottish Fire Service paid a visit to inspect the church on Monday. As a result of this visit the following changes have been/will be carried out: the offertory gifts table and the seats at the back of the church have been removed since this is the main exit route and they constitute a possible trip hazard in the event of an emergency evacuation. The door leading out to the hall car park is to be upgraded and a push-bar mechanism installed, new emergency exit signage and lighting has been installed at the exits of the church and the handles of the doors at the back of the church leading out to the courtyard have been removed and these doors are no longer in use. A “Risk Assessment Survey” has also been commissioned and will be carried out during Easter Week
