Snowdrop walks for historic Thurton church
Nature lovers will be able to enjoy spectacular snowdrops during a church fundraising day.
St Ethelbert's Church in Thurton, between Norwich and Lowestoft, is opening its doors on Sunday, February 19, from 2-4pm.
The event, organised by the Friends of St Ethelbert's Church, will raise funds for new heating and lighting systems which cost around £66,000.
So far the group has raised £46,000 over the past 15 years.
Visitors can admire snowdrops in the churchyard belonging to the 900-year-old building for free.

It is the first year the church has run snowdrop walks.
