A church in Heydon has been granted thousands of pounds by the government to help with urgent roof repairs.
The Holy Trinity Parish Church will get £13,000 to complete repairs to the roof in the north and south aisles thanks to the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund.
Rector Andy Colebrooke said: “The news is brilliant. We are really excited and grateful that it’s going to happen.
“As well as the grant funding, we would like to thank villagers for their generosity.
“They’ve sent in very generous donations to help over the last few years.
