TRUSTEES of the Parish Church in Axminster are calling on residents to help them raise money to make repairs to the roof.The Minster, considered by many to be at the heart of the community and town centre, is to receive a grant of £185,000 from English Heritage. But the church must also raise £50,000 - a challenge given the economic downturn. Money will be raised by appeals, events such as public concerts and through 'Friends of the Minster' sponsorship. Individual annual subscription costs £10, joint subscription £12.50 and family £15. For more information, call (01297) 32150.
