Manse Progress: The Committee of Management recently received a report on Manse options and consequences, ranging from relatively expensive renovation, to sale, to building on 4A Welham Street, to sale of 4A Welham Street, to demolition and building of a new Manse – the latter which Hornsby Shire Council has opposed, on heritage preservation grounds. An easy option is not apparent. The Committee of Management will be meeting specifically to workshop towards one option, to put to a Congregational Meeting after Easter. If you have thoughts and ideas on the above options, please contact a Committee of Management member, to let them know directly. Colin Johnston
