"It is with great pleasure I wish to inform you that the Contractor has completed all the works as of 18 January 2021. You may remember that we commenced the works on 20 January 2020.

However, the work in the two small toilets in the monks' accommodation has not been completed in the interest of the health and safety of the resident monks' due to the current Tier 4 restrictions and it will be done when the current restrictions are lifted hopefully in the near future.

The Building Control Officer has visited the site on 18 January 2021 for the final inspection of works and was satisfied with the works and will be issuing his certificate soon after the completion of all snagging items by the Contractor.The Contractor has now removed all his scaffolding and hoarding and have started cleaning the site and clearing his materials and equipment from site.

As you are aware the work continued without any disruption during this unprecedented period due to the Corona pandemic and we are very thankful to the Contractor and the Consultancy team for their untiring efforts, support and the cooperation to complete this major construction project within one year of commencement.

Finally, I am very grateful to all our devotees, supporters and well-wishers who very kindly and generously donated to the building fund and I wish to offer my sincere thanks to all of you for enabling us to bring this project to a very successful completion.

Also, at the moment we can't invite you to view the project but when the Covid-19 epidemic is under control, we will plan an opening ceremony and inform you."
