Astra Charity Day
Astra Charity day, installing new HD CCTV, cleaning grounds & bell tower
Astra Security Ltd (www.astrasec.com) are proud to support local charitable organisations working within the community. This year, Astra are supporting Westbury on Trym Parish Church. There has been a church on this site since the 8th century and has been designated by Historic England as a Grade 1 listed building. The church opens its doors to the community every day and is a focal point for the local community
Recently the church was targeted by thieves who stole the church collection box and vandalised/destroyed church pews in the process. On hearing of this attack, Astra approached the church to offer our services to not only install and commission a new CCTV system, but also work with the church to progress some of the longer-term renovation projects.
In February 2018, Astra took a team of willing volunteers to Westbury On Trym Parish Church to install a brand-new CCTV system providing HD imagery throughout the building, remote monitoring and training to members of the parish. In addition to this, a large area of land was cleared in preparation for future works, the bell chamber was scrubbed to within an inch of its life and the office areas were given a well needed lick of paint.
Big thanks go out to the team at DVS (www.dvs.co.uk) who supported Astra by generously donating the recorder and cameras, to Father Andre and Keith who kept us all well supplied with refreshments throughout the day and finally to everyone from the team at Astra and the local parish community for helping to make this such an enjoyable and successful day.
