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.

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
Posted: Mon, 23 Sep, 2019 (3 months ago) by Adrian
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.
