AFM lights up the Little Chapel

Thursday 29 March 2018

Facilities management company, AFM has installed specialist LED lighting inside and outside the iconic Little Chapel in St. Andrew as part of its community support activity during 2018.

The lighting project is part of The Little Chapel Foundation’s restoration and refurbishment project, which is ongoing to fully and sympathetically restore the chapel.

Phase one of the AFM project was the lighting installation on the upper area of the chapel, with the next steps including the installation of lighting in the lower floor and external lighting. The project also involves the installation of a power supply to the building, socket outlets and speaker cabling.

AFM suppliers, CI Lighting and Collingwood Lighting, gifted materials for the project, whilst sister company Geomarine assisted with the installation of ductwork for cable runs.

Mark Edgar, managing director of AFM, thanked his staff and suppliers who are helping with the project:

"Being part of The Little Chapel restoration is a great opportunity to ensure an important part of Guernsey’s heritage will be enjoyed by both locals and visitors to our Island for years to come. The addition of subtle lighting, both internally and externally, will enhance the ambience of the chapel by day and night."

John Silvester, chairman of The Little Chapel Foundation, was very grateful for the donation of time, materials and labour: "The very generous support we have received from AFM has enabled us to show the public that we are keen to produce a quality tourist attraction as well as restoring an Island gem."

The lighting was showcased earlier this week, when the Bailiff visited on Palm Sunday. The chapel will open to the public on Sunday 1 April 2018.
