Tower open at church

Have your say

ST MARY and St Nicolas Church in Spalding will provide lofty views of the town centre on Saturday, September 8 when it opens the tower to visitors.

There will be a free guided tour of the church from 11am, lasting about 45 minutes.

Flower arrangers who would like to arrange displays for the church regularly or just occasionally can also attend a flower workshop at 10.30am to get some ideas on what to do.

The church is opening its doors as part of The Lincolnshire Heritage Open Day.

It will also welcome people taking part in The Lincolnshire Churches’ Trust Big Ride and Stride, where cyclists and walkers raise money by getting sponsorship for a tour of churches.

l On Sunday, September 23 the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Tony Worth will present Nicholas Pitts with the British Empire Medal at the 11am service. Mr Pitts has been organist and choirmaster at the church for 31 years. He was awarded the BEM in the Queen’s birthday honours.
