Members of a church are celebrating following the opening of a new £34,000 development.

Christ Church, in Green Lane, Stamford, is now benefitting from a new remodelled office, a new wash room and a disabled access toilet.

The facilities were officially opened by Stamford mayor Bob Sandall, the Archdeacon of Lincoln Tim Barker, church members and volunteers from the church’s day centre for the elderly.

Operations manager for the church, Michael Mills, said: “The new facilities are beautiful and they make a big difference to the way we run. It’s been a lovely occasion to celebrate the opening and explain what the church is doing in the local area.

The work was funded by a £17,000 grant from Lincolnshire County Council, an £8,000 grant from fundraising group Stamford XT and fundraising by church volunteers.

Mr Mills added: “Our thanks go to everyone who has helped to make this possible - our sponsors and dedicated staff and volunteers.”

The church’s day centre group is calling for more volunteers to help out with its weekly service.

The centre provides food and company for those over 60 from 9am to 3pm on Wednesdays but volunteer numbers have been falling and more help is needed.

To find out more on how to become a volunteer call manager Amy Parker on 07895356898.
