Deeping St Nicholas Parish Church will have to look elsewhere for help to pay for new signs after its request for cash was declined.

Parish councillors turned down pleas from the church to have a grant from the Fenland Green Power Co-operative Community Fund, linked to Deeping (St Nicholas) Wind Farm.

The church, having already received about £10,000 from the fund for computers and sound equipment, will instead be told to apply to Lincoln Diocese.
