Vicarage to keep up appearances

Hyacinth Bucket, of Keeping Up Appearances, is stepping in to help the Kurow vicarage. "Mrs Bouquet's Candlelight Supper at the Vicarage" will be held on July 31 in Kurow, following a public meeting to discuss establishing a new community heritage tourism enterprise utilising the St Albans vicarage and grounds.

One of the organisers, Pam Currall, said the 1892 vicarage was a "beautiful" historic building.

The themed event would "open the doors" so the community could see what a beautiful building it was and generate input on how it could be used.

It would involve the community in discussing "what we see as a wonderful piece of heritage".
