Work is under way at St Mary and St Nicolas Church, Spalding, to make it more inviting for visitors.

Tombstones damaged by frost and other bad weather are being repaired in the churchyard and there are also plans to create a new entrance, refreshment area and improved heating at the back of the 13th century church.

Rev John Bennett, church vicar, said: “The churchyard is a public open space and the work there is the result of some damage to table top tombs which we have asked a locally-based builder to cement back in place.”
