NEWS that cathedrals will be boosted by a £20m renovation pot has been welcomed in Hampshire.

The Chancellor has said that cathedrals will form a “focal point” for local and national remembrance during the First World War commemorations this year.

Annabelle Boyes, receiver general of Winchester Cathedral, said: “Renovation and conservation are at the heart of every cathedral’s role in preserving the nation’s heritage and the Government’s participation in that should be warmly welcomed.”

Winchester MP Steve Brine said he had already written to the Winchester Cathedral team to ensure they were ready to make an application.
