A village fete is this year being held to raise funds to repair a 137-year-old stained glass church window damaged by a fleeing pheasant!

The sixth Mollington Fete, which takes place on Saturday, May 17, will raise money to repair the hole caused by a pheasant trying to escape from the 14th Century church.

Fete fundraiser Ginetta Best said: “Earlier in the year a pheasant took refuge in the church and, when startled the next morning, tried to fly through the decorative window above the altar. The pheasant was unharmed, but the window will need replacing.”
