FENLANDER: Approach to St Peter’s Church, Chatteris, improved thanks to �20k makeover
ST Peter’s Church in Chatteris is looking better than ever following a major makeover.
Gone are all the potholes, rough surface and ragged edges at the front. In their place has come a smooth Tarmac roadway and neat edging.
A new York Stone path leading from the street to the church entrance has been installed, replacing the old flagstones, many of which were broken and uneven. The work has also included a newly laid footpath to the rear entrance of the church.
Meanwhile, all the floral displays are ablaze with colour.
The �20,000 refurbishment has been carried out by Fenland District Council and funded from its capital programme for cemeteries and churchyards.

Councillor Peter Murphy, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for the environment, said: “St Peter’s is one of the town’s most attractive features but the approach to it has been in a poor state for some time and it was getting worse.
“We’ve put a lot of money into this and The Landscape Group, our grounds maintenance contractors, have done a great job, with extra help coming from the town’s In Bloom volunteers.
