Improved access to the churchyard and church
The Flintham Parochial Church Council intends to apply for a grant from the Notts County Council Capital Fund towards improving access to the churchyard and therefore the church by removing the steps at the churchyard gates and creating a slope up the churchyard path. This would enable wheelchair access and make it easier for elderly congregation members. The grant would be for 50% of the total cost, so fundraising will be necessary.
In the meantime., the church has borrowed a wheelchair ramp and anyone in a wheelchair who wants to come to any service should contact Iain, the Churchwarden, on 526162. He will then put out the ramp and ensure that assistance is available on their arrival and departure.
