Appeal to save historic windows after thieves hit Hove church
5:00am Sunday 5th January 2014 in News
A church recently targeted by thieves and vandals is appealing for help to save its historic windows.
All Saints Church, on the corner of Eaton Road and The Drive, Hove, needs to raise £45,000 to repair the crumbling stone mullions that support its Victorian stained glass windows.
The appeal comes a week after the church was broken into on Christmas Day, when thieves smashed stained glass windows and a set of doors.

They also damaged a collection box worth £1,500 and took the money inside, thought to be up to £500.
Churchwarden Michael Anderson feared the repair bill would top £10,000.
Sussex Police is appealing for anyone who was in the area in the early hours of Christmas Day and saw anything suspicious to call 101 and quote serial 391 of 25/12.
