Gainsborough flooring is a family run business, for over 40 years they have been providing flooring to homes and workplaces throughout the UK.

The specialist business has been working alongside local flooring suppliers including Mears, David Hall Carpets, CFS and the Modern Flooring Company to renovate the cafe and foyer area by installing new flooring at The Olive Grove Cafe in Central Methodist Church.

The coffee shop situated in Lunar Street acts as a welcoming hub for the local community to pop in for a coffee, volunteer and meet up and make friends.

The flooring shop is keen on making sure there is little wastage by finding creative ways of utilising any excess stock rather than it going to landfill.

Church Steward, Julia Blacklett, said: “We worked closely with Vicky from Gainsborough who gave us various options and prices for new flooring.

“The church then held a gift day to raise some money and at the open day the options were available to discuss the idea of an eco floor where we could reuse flooring that would otherwise go to landfill was explained to those present.

The concept perfectly complements the church’s values, and as it would also save us money, it was the perfect solution.”
