The Friends of Frampton Churches are promoting a concert on Friday, January 18 to help towards their £10,000-plus target to preserve the village’s two churches.

It’s estimated there’s a £10,000 to £16,000 shortfall in the money needed to repair St Mary the Virgin and St Michael and All Angels churches.

Status Quo tribute band Status Quote will appear at Boston’s Blackfriars Theatre along with singer Dave Logan as the Friends try to put cash in the coffers so future generations can enjoy the churches.

Parish priest Father Charles Sowden is delighted the Friends are helping the village’s heritage.

He said: “It’s nice to have people who are that interested and want to do something. The churches have been at the centre of the village for a long time.”

• Tickets cost £10 on 01205 723579.
