The 15 volunteers from Pulham St Mary and Starston ground around 100 tree stumps to pave the way for the area to be mowed, and then made ready for 160 car parking spaces.

Pulham St Mary Church has been chosen as one of three churches around the country to host a world-class classical concert as part of the Music in Country Churches initiative.

Music in Country Churches was founded in 1989 with the support of the Prince of Wales, with the aim of bringing top class musicians to country churches of “recognised beauty and importance”.

On the weekend of July 23 and 24, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Choir of the King’s Consort will perform at the church to around 300 people.

“But first, we have to create the car park in a neighbouring field,” said one of the co-ordinators, Tim Webster.

“We applied to the project jointly with Starston Church and the concert will raise money towards both our funds.”

Tickets will be available from May 24.
