Community Centre

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.

Flordon Film Night: Fisherman's Friend

A great film to ease us into the Christmas spirit; helped along by loads of mince pies, sausage rolls and mulled wine!

Doors open 7pm.  Film starts approx. 7:45pm

FISHERMAN'S FRIEND (2019) Drama 12A 112 minutes

Directed by Chris Foggin. With Daniel Mays, Tuppence Middleton

Ten fishermen from Cornwall achieve a Top 10 hit after they are signed by Universal Records for their canny talent of being able to sing a sea shanty or two.  Whilst there is definite appeal to coastal venues with strong fishing links, Fisherman’s Friends taps into the sense of close-knit communities, middle-age male obsolescence and the commitment of keeping traditions alive.

One to keep audiences swinging and swaying along in the aisles.

Book Exchange Flordon

It has been some years since the Parish Council kindly bought the phone box for £1, I would say that was a pound well spent. There is always plenty of books to choose from and the stock is changing regularly. Alasdair and I have given the book exchange a coat of paint and tidied the area around the box and it is lovely to see the bench back by the book exchange. We were delighted to see a family eating their packed lunch there at the weekend and browsing through a couple of books. Thank you all for your continued support in bringing books for us all to read, its wonderful.
