Community rooms

The Community Rooms are in a two-storey extension built to the south side of the Church in 1994. The Bishop of Ely and his wife opened The Community Rooms in a special service of dedication.

There is a bright and airy entrance area to the Church, to the Community Rooms and to the Parish Office. In this area there is a centennial anniversary tapestry made by parishioners in 1996.
