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.

PETERLOO (2018) Drama/History PG 154 minutes
Mike Leigh’s portrayal of the events surrounding the infamous 1819 Peterloo Massacre. Government forces charged into a crowd of over 60,000 people who had gathered in a peaceful protest against rising levels of poverty and to demand political reform. Many protesters were killed and hundreds more injured, sparking a nationwide outcry but also further government suppression. The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper. Starring Maxine Peake and Rory Kinnear.
“Leigh’s achievement is to have made a period film with the same immediacy and sense of anger that runs through contemporary dramas like Hillsborough or Bloody Sunday. He has a huge ensemble cast but that exhaustive attention to detail and fascination with the eccentricities of human behaviour which has always characterised his work is still there.” The Independent
