Work on the £2.3 million regeneration of Lynn’s St Nicholas Chapel will be opened up for the public to see during two open sessions next week.

People are being urged to come along to the drop-in events, which will be held at the St Ann’s Street site next Tuesday and Thursday, January 20 and 22, between 10am and 1pm.

Visitors will be able to access the site and see the stonemasons at work on the project, which is being co-ordinated by the Churches Conservation Trust (CCT).

Officials say the sessions will be the first of a series of similar events to allow residents and supporters to see how work on the improvements to the historic building is progressing. There is no need to book.

Toilet and kitchen facilities, solar panels and a heating system are among the new facilities planned as part of the project, which is now hoped will be completed this summer.

More than £200,000 was raised locally towards the project, securing a Heritage Lottery Fund grant for the rest of the cash needed.

Meanwhile, tours of the construction site will be held on Tuesday, February 3.

Places for these events must be booked in advance by emailing or phoning 01223 324442.
