RE: Peter­bor­ough church pre­pared to spend thou­sands of pounds de­fend­ing it­self over ren­o­va­tions ap­peal: A com­plete waste of time and money. This church, which has stood for years, does not need its beau­ti­ful in­te­rior ripped out to be re­placed with that of a ‘com­mu­nity cen­tre’ in­te­rior. There’s a hall just down the road for that! Does the church not have more wor­thy causes to fo­cus its at­ten­tions to? Let’s hope the Vic­to­rian So­ci­ety takes a firm stand against this up­set­ting ap­peal. Rachel Pish­horn Churches are there for those who wor­ship in them. The pri­mary func­tion of the build­ing is to serve it’s wor­shipers, not those who want a choco­late box im­age. If the con­gre­ga­tion need bet­ter ac­cess (they are ag­ing) and wish to use the space in other ways why not? The build­ing is not a mu­seum. Shaun Noyes

If you don’t want the church, de­mol­ish it and build an­other vil­lage hall like the one next door ..... oth­er­wise leave it alone. Paul Young
