Work starts on church revamp

Have your say

Community facilities at a village methodist church are undergoing a major upgrade thanks to a £27,000 grant from a 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.

The existing entrance and toilet have been demolished, and are being replaced by new toilets, baby-change facilities and a disabled-friendly entrance.

The work, being carried out by local contractor WH Buck & Sons, is being funded by a grant from Barlborough-based Banks Renewables, via its Banks Community Fund, and is designed to ensure better use of the venue.
