St Gregory’s Church in Sudbury held an open day and tea party last Saturday to help raise funds for the building.

Visitors had the chance to see the head of Simon of Sudbury, one time Archbishop of Canterbury who was beheaded in 1381 during the Peasants’ Revolt.

There was also the chance to climb the church tower and grab a bird’s eye views of Sudbury, while Roger Green was on hand to explain how the church organ works and give a demonstration.

In total just over £730 was raised, with funds also coming from cream teas being served and from a raffle.

Church lay elder Sue Attride said: “It went really well and we had a brilliant turnout.”
