Long Whatton Methodist Church – Have YOUR say!!
The Parish Council has been offered the opportunity to purchase the Methodist Church in Long Whatton and retain it as a community building. Careful consideration needs to be given to the uses of the facility and the repair and upgrade works required to the building, including forming an off-road car park. A feasibility study has now been commissioned by the Parish Council to ensure this would be a viable venture.
The Parish Council would be very interested to hear from all members of the community on their individual views to ensure this is a project the residents would like to see. Please could I ask you to email to have your say.
