Deb Brownlee (Chair St John's Church Preservation Group)
Deb Brownlee, chair of the St John's Church Preservation Group, "We sought agreement through the Steering Group to do sufficient work to make the building waterproof whilst further explorations regarding the future for St John's continue.
, chair of the group "We have always been a fairly small but hardworking team, and the loss of anyone from the team is important, but to lose several people makes things very difficult for us and we need to replace them very quickly in order to be able to proceed with our 2009 Action Plan.
"Dedication and enthusiasm are the most important attributes we seek as any necessary training or guidance will be provided.
We are offering the chance to be involved in an exciting and involving challenge, to help us achieve our goal of re-opening St John's Church

Deb Brownlee chair of St John's Church Preservation Group, "Obviously we were delighted when the Church Commissioners office in London informed us that the Bishop of Dudley had asked for the redundancy process to be halted whilst a third survey is carried out.
Deb Brownlee, chair of the Preservation Group "We have to comply with certain criteria in our proposal to get St John's Church listed, and this includes photographs of the interior to illustrate architectural points.

Deb Brownlee, chair of the Preservation Group "This was an incredibly heartening result for us.
Deb Brownlee, chair of the Preservation Group:
"Although with all the help we have received we have cleared more than we could have believed possible in the time, there is still a lot to do.
If we could just get enough people this Sunday we might just finish the rough clearance which would make every single grave accessible again.
We urge the whole community and relations of those buried at St John's
to come along and help.
Bad weather won't stop play!"
