A Gorleston church will be celebrating the installation of new kitchen and accessible toilets at a special service later this month

Last October Norfolk County Council awarded £1m to community groups across Norfolk with St Mary Magdalene Church benefitting from the Norfolk Social Infrastructure Fund

The church used its £38,000 for work towards a new kitchen and accessible toilets and new chairs to expand its offer to the community

On the morning of Sunday, January 23 the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Rev Graham Usher, will lead a service and dedicate the new facilities

The mayor of the borough of Great Yarmouth Adrian Thompson is also due to attend the service

The Vicar of St Mary Magdalen Church, Rev Matthew Price, had said the new facilities would  "enable our worship space to be properly developed into a multi-function space"


The £1m community funding had been shared out to 25 different good causes and organisations
