A COMMITTEE has been set up to oversee St Botolph’s Church, on the South Downs Way.

The meeting organised last Wednesday by the Churches Conservation Trust, which took over the Annington Road church’s care the same day, was attened by 12 people from Botolphs and the surrounding area.

A spokeswoman for the trust said: “A committee has been set up with those that attended and there is another meeting planned for May (date to be confirmed).

“Others would be welcome to come along to that meeting if they were interested in getting involved.

“We need people to help organise events, clean the church and fund-raise.”

Anyone interested in helping can contact regional volunteering officer John Vigar on 01634 845944.

The church, a perfect refuge for passers by, will be closed for major repairs this autumn, so those who would like to should visit the church over the next few months, the trust advises. It is currently open daily.
