Traditional craft skills will be on display in a Norfolk church as it stages an event to help raise money for major roof and improvement work.

All Saints Church in Beighton, near Acle, will see thatching, stonemasonry, stained glass, woodcarving and flint-knapping all demonstrated by local craftsmen on Saturday, June 17 between 10am and 4pm.

There will also be a range of activities for all the family to enjoy together with refreshments throughout the day.

It is in aid of a project to re-thatch and repair the largely 14th century nave roof, repair and reglaze the upper level windows and complete internal improvements which includes installing mains water and a toilet and a galley kitchen area.

The cost is £194,000 with the community needing to raise £7,000 towards the cost.
