– area no longer a haven for vagrantsIt was an eyesore and a haven for thieves and vagrants,NFL Jerseys Store, but the century-old St. Philip’s Anglican Church and its environs are now getting a much needed facelift.Thanks to several concerned citizens, the historic church, flanked to the north and south by D’urban and Princes Streets, has undergone a major transformation over the past several months.The rusty, leaking roof has been replaced with one that is painted in striking red. The rotting outer pinewood walls have been replaced with a concrete facade. New windows are replacing the broken ones. Carpenters have pulled up the old floorboards and beams. Washrooms have been installed. The massive front door is being replaced.Renovated section of the churchThe carpenters who spoke to Kaieteur News said that they are preserving the old designs to the damaged structure.St. Philip’s Green, the massive ground that encompasses the church, has also undergone a welcomed transformation. Workmen have cleared away most of the trees and bushes that had made the ‘Green’ a haven for thieves and drug addicts, who would often defecate in the compound.The reverend John Smith, who died in the Georgetown jail on 6 February, 1824,China NBA Jerseys, after being incarcerated for failing to inform the authorities of an impending slave rebellion,Cheap Jerseys For Sale, is said to have been buried in an unmarked grave in a former cemetery on which St Philip’s Church now stands.During a brief interview, Mr. Terrence Park, the caretaker, showed Kaieteur News some of the work that has been done,Wholesale NFL Jerseys 2018, while reminiscing on how badly the church had fallen into disrepair.He recalled that the church roof was the first part of the church to be targeted for repair.“It was in a terrible condition.

The tower has now been pulled down. About a year ago,Atlanta Falcons Jersey, the body of an unidentified man was also found on the church’s compound.Mr. Park said that the carpenters also became targets of the vagrants when renovations first began.According to the caretaker, the workmen ignored his advice that they should shut the front door of the church while they were working.This gave the vagrants the opportunity to cart off a few of the workmen’s tools.However, with the grounds now cleared of vegetation, the churchgoers are now returning to St. Philip’s, while the vagrants have departed.“They (the vagrants) are haunted. They can’t get anywhere to throw-back.”
