POPular former rector of Fakenham is due to return to his old parish next month to perform the rededication of the church's restored west window.
The tower window of Fakenham Parish Church was completely restored in a £46,000 project.
It involved removing of Victorian pink glass and replacing it with clear glass which has made the interior of the building much lighter.
The cost of the scheme was met by grants and public donations.

Local people were invited to sponsor one of the 12 sections at a cost of £1,000. In return, their names were etched on to a section of the new glass.
The Ven Hugh Buckingham, who left the parish 19 years ago, will return for the rededication service on February 10.

The ceremony will take place during the 10.30am parish communion service.
People who gave donations for the window or who were involved with the project, including Terry Devlin, of Devlin Plummer, the firm that carried out the work, have been invited to the service.
There will be a reception afterwards when people will have a chance to talk informally to the former rector.
Fakenham rector the Rev Adrian Bell said he was grateful for the donations that were made which allowed the new window to be installed and he hoped many of those who helped would be able to attend the service.
