And on the seventh day, hall is built
Runcorn Weekly News
MORE than 120 craftsmen and women gave up their time free-of-charge to help build a new Jehovah’s Witness hall in less than a week.
Work started last Wednesday at the site of the group’s old hall on Labernum Grove, Runcorn, which was demolished in February.
And by Sunday the job was completed thanks to the efforts of scores of builders, plasterers, plumbers, roofers, gas fitters and electricians who are all members of the Jehovah’s Witness faith.
Traditionally, the religion’s places of worship are built thanks to the efforts of worshippers who donate their time and skills.
Spokesman Michael Peak said: ‘It is an incredible sight when there are scores of people who have volunteered their time to build a new hall.
‘It is hard to believe so much can be achieved in such a short time, but everyone works together and a huge amount of planning goes into the project.
‘Every time a new hall is built, a committee is formed to organise things so that when the time comes to start building everything is planned down to the last possible detail.’
