New lease of life for Church

13th January 2020News

A new lease of life for the Baptist Church, Winchester.

Gordon Lockhart, the church secretary, said: “For a number of years we have been battling with damp and made the decision in 2018 to rectify this issue. We appointed local architects Seymour Bainbridge to prepare the necessary documentation and in March 2019 commissioned RV Dart and Son Builders of Romsey to undertake the works for us. “The work involved removing all the old render, allowing the elevation to dry out before new render was applied and decorated. As with any work to old buildings, there were surprises along the way such as finding there was very little structural support to the balcony.”   [Reported in The Hampshire Chronicle]

Our MD Goes Green

There is always something going on at RV Dart. Colin, our Managing Director recently purchased a plugin ‘hybrid’ car which means that the car uses more than one means of propulsion. This type of  car uses a normal petrol engine with an electric motor. The advantage of using a hybrid car is that it uses less fuel and emits less CO2 emissions than most conventional cars. Running cleaner with better mileage adds up to being an environmentally friendly vehicle.
