It's taken 20 years but work on the first ever Church in Crossways has finally started at Frome Valley School.

The first turf was turned at the site yesterday (10th Nov) marking the first major stage of the project.

The village was built on the site of an old World War airfield so has never had an official place of worship.

What started as a monthly service has now become so popular that the local clergy have been campaigning for a new place of worship to be built.

The village now has a population of 2,500 people.

Local vicar Jacquie Birdseye told Wessex FM; "We're going to be a community hub really. So anybody can come in and use the facilities and maybe come in and have a coffee or use it as a meeting place. We hope to do a lot of work with families and young children."
