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.
