Displays will tell history of churches

VILLAGE churches will be the focus of three local history exhibitions.

The first of two events being held by Yapton and Ford Local History Society will take place on April 18 at St Mary’s Church in Yapton.

It will be followed on April 25 by a display at St Andrew-by-the-Ford. Both will be open from 11am-5pm.

Yapton Free Church is holding its own exhibition on April 25.

Displays at St Mary’s will show various aspects of its history and its influence on village life.
A series of short talks about the church will run from 2pm until 4pm.

Musical interludes and bell ringing will add further interest.

St Andrew will see a smaller exhibition joined by a slideshow with commentary and a choral octet from the University of Chichester.
