Chairs for the Reordered Church


Chairs for the Reordered Church

A consultation was undertaken with our congregation in January and February 2018. Five chairs were considered and sample chairs placed in the memorial Chapel with information about each.  92 comments forms were completed. Of the 74 forms which expressed a preference, 39 (53%) preferred the Theo plain wooden chair. (The figures for the other chairs were 27% preferring the Theo wood and chrome chair and 20% preferring the Abbey wood and chrome chair.) Two other manufacturers were also contacted but had nothing suitable. We have therefore recommended to the Reordering Board that we purchase the Theo chair. 10% of the chairs will have arms (following suggestions on the feedback forms) and the remainder without arms. The chairs are stackable on trolleys and are lightweight. We would like to thank all the members of the congregation who took part in the consultation. Hazel Mace, John Ward, Clair Chilvers.
