Facelift for church room

Have your say

Community facilities at a north east Derbyshire village’s Methodist church are undergoing a major upgrade thanks to a five-figure cash boost from a local renewable energy firm.

The ‘school room’ at Barlborough Methodist Church, which is used for a range of community and church functions, is undergoing a major makeover which will help to bring it up to modern standards.

The entrance and toilet facilities have been demolished, and are being replaced by new toilets, baby change facilities and an entrance which provides full disabled access to the building.

The work being carried out by WH Buck & Sons, is being funded by a £27,000 grant provided by Barlborough-based Banks Renewables, via its Banks Community Fund, and is designed to attract more individuals and groups from across the area to make more and better use of the venue.
