A concert is being planned to raise money for a village church which has had lead stolen from its roof four times.

The South Norfolk Youth Symphonic Band Plus - a group of about 30 musicians - will perform at St John the Baptist Church in Bressingham, near Diss, on Saturday, May 6.

Organiser, Alison Dumbell, said the band was made up of performers aged from eight to adult and included brass instruments, clarinets, flutes, percussion and more.

Mrs Dumbell said it should be a enjoyable concert for an excellent cause.

She said the church was in need of repairs.

Mrs Dumbell said: “We’ve had lead stolen from our roofs four times, the guttering needs work done and we need to have heating in the church because at the moment there isn’t any.”

The concert starts at 7pm and tickets are £10, and £5 for under 16s, including food, and are available from Bressingham Village Shop, or by calling 01379 687580.
