Comfortable and welcoming amenities for all in and around Flordon
The community centre is based in St Michael’s Church, the 11th century grade 2* listed building that is part ofthe Mulbarton group of churches. This was once a round-towered church, but the Victorians replaced thefallen tower with a red brick wall and a bellcote as part of general renovation. The church has one of the bestpreserved known 13th century timber roofs in Norfolk.
The pews have been removed from the nave and a level timber floor laid, suitable for all community activities and enabling easy wheelchair access. Improved heating and lighting has been installed to save energy and to provide a comfortable, welcoming environment. There is now mains water supply and drainage, with a toilet suitable for disabled people installed in the renovated Victorian vestry. A kitchenette at the west end of the nave enables food and drink to be prepared and served. A hearing loop system has been funded by Snelling Trust. The purchase of comfortable chairs has been sponsored by parishioners and people with family links to Flordon subscribing £4,000. Access has been improved by removing thresholds and steps and outside there is a new gravel footpath.

Film Screening: Journey's End

Film Screening: 'Journey's End'
As part of our commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, we will be holding a special FREE screening of the 2018 film 'Journey's End'. The film will be shown at Flordon Church on Friday 2nd November at 7:30pm, with doors open from 7:00pm.
The film, based on the novel by R C Sherriff, is set in a dugout in Aisne in 1918, and tells the story of a group of British officers, led by the mentally disintegrating young officer Stanhope, as they await their fate. The film is a 12A, it is not a violent war film, but an examination of the psychological damage of war described by The Times as “The First World War film to end them all”.
Whilst the screening is free of charge, refreshments will be served for a donation which will be split 50/50 between the charity 'Combat Stress' and Flordon Church.

Flordon Film Club
Posted: Thu, 9 Aug, 2018 (2 months ago) by David
The Flordon Film Club finished the season with “THE POST”, starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. It was a cracking good movie with members leaving on a high – Steven Spielberg’s direction takes some beating doesn’t it? If you haven’t seen this film I highly recommend that you do so.
The new season starts on Wednesday 17 October, followed by the Christmas meeting on Wednesday 19 December. Members are currently making their choices of films and the club newsletter will be circulated shortly detailing them. If you are not a member but would like to be added to the mailing list with a view to coming along you would be most welcome; just send me your full name and email address.
The Film Club meets in the Community Hall at the church on the third Wednesday of the month 5 times per year. Annual membership is £5 per person and admission to each screening costs £5 per seat. We sell good wine cheaply plus chocolate etc. It’s a great opportunity to enjoy a bit of social intercourse before the film!
