The final fundraising amount was over £4800 which allowed us to make a generous donation of almost £500 to FIND (Families in Need Ipswich).

This amount of fundraising makes a real difference to a small village like Flowton and where essential repairs are required to our only community building.

Thank you for supporting us. 

Hidden Memories – signing date Saturday 6th April 2019

Flowton Church requires additional funds to repair the roof in the chancel and the vestry. We are offering the chance to sign  a roof tile that will be used in the repair work, only uncovered again when the roof is next repaired. Maybe you lived in Flowton in 2019 or used to live here; maybe you want to sign a tile in memory of a loved one?

The signing will take place on Saturday 6 April where the churchwardens will be available in the church between 10am and 2pm. A donation to the repair fund will be required, and a record of all the signed tiles will be kept in church as part of the Church’s records. 

Any queries, contact Diana or Margaret, the churchwardens or email flowton.suffolk@gmail.com 

St. Mary’s Church awarded £6000 for roof repairs by National Churches Trust

National Churches Trust awards a £6000 grant to St Mary’s Church in Flowton.

St. Mary’s Church in Flowton has been awarded £6000 grant from the National Churches Trust for essential repair to the north aspect of the Church roof. This is in addition to £3000 from the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust and £2500 from the Ganzoni Trust.

The church in Flowton is the only community building in the village and serves as a place of worship as well as providing space for community functions and local events. The work, which will begin in April, will allow St Mary’s to repair the roof on the north aspect of the church. Without these essential repairs, the Church cannot remain watertight and continue to serve as a community building.
