Take a look inside Crawley pastoral centre following £70,000 refurbishment

St Barnabas Pastoral Centre in Pound Hill has recently undergone an extensive £70,000 refurbishment.

Tuesday, 29th June 2021, 4:10 pm

The project has improved the access into and within the Pastoral Centre, in Worth Road, making the space more user- friendly for all but particularly for the elderly and the disabled.

The entrance area is now able to easily accommodate a wheelchair and the flooring is level throughout. Automated door opening and closing will make for easy entry. The lighting has been improved with the installation of LED spotlights. The overall effect is a more open, spacious and welcoming venue.
