The future of a crumbling church looks more secure after the National Lottery answered its prayers.

All Saints Church in Welborne has been awarded £168,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for its Fawlty Tower project, enabling essential repair work to be carried out.

The condition of the tower had been a cause for concern for many years, and the church revealed it needed urgent action.

The money will also help with the installation of a new toilet and improvements to lighting and sound systems.

Parochial Church Council fabric officer Richard Took said: “We are delighted that, thanks to National Lottery Players and the Heritage Lottery Fund, we have been given this once in a lifetime opportunity to save our church. It has been a focal point serving the village and local community for 1,000 years and it’s great to know that we’re a step closer to preserving it for future generations.”
