Bells ring out in Victorian Benington
Boston. Saturday 10 September 2011 Benington Church Victorian themed Open Day 
THE bells rang from Benington’s church for the first time in eight years at the weekend.

More than 500 people turned out to the Victorian-themed open day at All Saints Church, where visitors could come in and have their say about how it will be used in future.
Benington Community Heritage Trust is working on turning the previously disused Grade I listed church into a multi-use community venue.
Visitors, from as far away as New Zealand and London, attended on Saturday and enjoyed scarecrow making, bead and card making, a Victorian sweet shop, a punch and judy show and other attractions, including an evening concert.
