SCHOOL pupils will be helped in their bid to decorate a church in Hemel Hempstead with a cash boost.
Pupils from the Collett School are helping to decorate the parish room and paint a mural at St Paul’s Church.

Mr Tindall said: “This is a small parish whose members are committed to improving the lives of local people. Once refurbished the room with be used for community activities including a parents group offering classes in skills like cooking.”
