The transformation of the undercroft has now been completed.

Watch out for details of the Grand Opening by Bishop Christopher on 5 May 2019.

Following on from the work on the west wall and windows, the transformation of the undercroft at St Peter's into a much needed meeting space with a kitchen and toilet facilities has now been completed.

Seaview has needed a hall of this size for some time, not only for the community activities we already organise but also to enbable us to launch new ones, such as the planned lunch and cinema clubs in association with the parish council and Age UK. Other organisations will also benefit from the new facilities, including a mother and toddler group, the local sailing club, a craft club, the Women's Institute (WI) and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Following the receipt in December 2017 of a grant of £10,000 from the National Churches Trust we were able to complete the fire proofing of the undercroft and get it into a usable state as a hall with toilets but without a kitchen, with the first event taking place in the new facility in May 2018.

Now, following a further round of fundraising and with the help of our dedicated vulunteers, we have been able to complete the transformation with the installation of a kitchen.

A hugeThank You to everyone who has made this possible.
