A church in Crowland must apply for planning consent for replacement front doors because the Reform Street building is in the conservation area.

Crowland Methodist Church celebrated its 100th anniversary last year and is entering its next 100 years in better shape.

The church property steward, Mick Goodman, said the building needed quite a few repairs, because of its age, and work costing around £10,000 has been carried out so far.

He says the front doors are “looking really shabby” and their replacements will cost around £3,000, once planning consent is granted.

“The new doors are going to be wood framed glass, instead of almost all wood, and they are going to have the Methodist Church symbol on them,” he said.

Mr Goodman said repairs had been carried out thanks to the generosity of the community, community leaders and the Methodist Circuit. The church hosts community events, with four rooms for different functions, and there’s a coffee morning on Saturdays.
