Social housing repairs and maintenance provider Mears has been helping a Holytown church to improve its facilities.

After being approached by Christ the King Church, apprentices from Mears have been busy fitting two new kitchens, painting the halls and updating the disabled toilet facilites at its own expense.

Mears contract manager Stephen Brown said: “We are always looking for ways to give back and to help in the communities we work in so when we were approached by Christ the King asking if there was anything we could do for them we decided we could.

“We have fitted a kitchen, one being where there was just a blank wall, and improved the toilet facilities to make them easier for disabled worshippers and visitors to use.

“All the materials were paid for by all and we also carried out the fitting so hopefully the parishoners will enjoy their new facilities and get many years’ use out of them.”

Holytown and Mossend councillor Jimmy Coyle said: “Mears have done an absolutely tremendous job and it was great work experience for their apprentices as well being of benefit to Christ the King.

“The halls were an absolute disaster area so it’s brilliant that the facilities have now been improved and can be put back into regular use which will please everyone associated with the church.”
