Flooring business Gainsborough Flooring has completed a project at a local church where it pulled together a community of suppliers.
Gainsborough Flooring worked alongside local flooring suppliers including Mears, David Hall Carpets, CFS and the Modern Flooring Company, which all provided tiles from excess stock, preventing it from going to landfill, for the use in the café and foyer of The Olive Grove Cafe in Central Methodist Church, Preston.
Julia Blacklett, Church Steward, was already familiar with Gainsborough Flooring as they’d previously replaced two carpets in the Church’s meeting room and One to One Listening Room about five years ago.
Julia commented: “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.
“The church is over 200 years old with a long history of social action. The installation ran incredibly smoothly and the flooring looks absolutely stunning.”
