People living in a small north Norfolk village are fundraising for a new war memorial.
Residents, businesses and organisations in Felmingham have been contacted for support and £650 has been raised towards the £2500 needed.
Keith Dally, Priest-in-Charge, United Benefice of King's Beck, which includes St Andrew's, Felmingham, said: 'As part of our commemorations of the First World War, we are currently fundraising for a new war memorial to be erected in the churchyard.
'For some unknown reason, Felmingham seems to be the only village in the area that doesn't have an external memorial, just a Roll of Honour Board inside the church.
'We are hoping to have it in place in time for a visit by the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Revd Graham James on August 5.
