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.

Another stained glass workshop has been held at Flordon. This time decorations with the theme of ‘Spring’ were made which could be put in the garden, attached to a cane, or hung in the house. Everyone who took part really enjoyed their day, which included an excellent lunch.
Ambitious eight-year project to create community centre for Flordon. Until the 1970s there was a parish room in the Rectory grounds used for community activities, then for a number of years a club house generously provided by a village resident was used for a chat group, children’s parties, harvest suppers and meetings generally.
