Work has finally begun on a £1million new Baptist Chapel in Kilmington.

Parishioners gathered on the site next to the village hall on Sunday to see the first turf cut, ready for construction work to get under way.

Pastor Darrell Holmes said the new chapel represents a major investment in the village to create a flexible building for the benefit of congregation and community alike.

Kilmington’s previous Baptist Chapel was destroyed in a fire in 2009.
