A community group looking to set up a new arts centre in Fleetwood is calling for help from residents.

Fleetwood Plus Community Interest Company is fund-raising in the hope of buying Mount Methodist Church and launched a public survey to get people’s views.

Director George Greenall said: “We would like everyone in the town to help us secure the future of the building for community use.

“To assist with fund-raising we are undertaking a consultation survey with the local community to see what facilities and services people would like to see in the proposed centre.”

The Mount Road church closed in December and is being used by Emmanuel Church on a temporary basis until a six-month moratorium is lifted, meaning the building can be sold.
