A Methodist Church in Brigham, west Cumbria, is about to re-open to the public- nine months after it closed for urgent repairs.
Members of the church community raised more than £120,000 through a combination of grants, donations and events.
The money was used to fix the roof, update the heating system and bring the church and adjacent hall up to modern standards and to meet the needs of the village.
