AN OPEN day is taking place to support a church so old it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

Friends of Crofton Old Church are raising money to render the south wall.

Sorel Mitchell said: ‘The church is a little gem but not many people know it exists. We hope to bring people to the church who have never been there.’

The open day starts at 10am, on Saturday at Crofton Old Church, Stubbington.

There will be choir singing as well as games, refreshments and a raffle.

There is also a chance to ring the church bell.
