New Facilities at St Andrew's Nearly Finished

After over five years of fund raising and amazing support from so many in the Thursford community, the new toilet and kitchenette are now complete.

St Andrews New WC

The toilet, fully fitted out for able bodied and disabled use, has been installed in the previous vestry and the kitchenette designed to fold away to become a church "chest" when not in use.
