A SERIES of giant, multi-coloured keys displayed throughout Portishead has marked the launch of the St Peter’s Church development campaign.
Residents awoke on Friday to find the keys, the symbol of St Peter, displayed at 12 popular landmarks in the town.
The Key Campaign aims to raise funds to develop facilities at the Church Road South building so the 700-year-old place of worship can continue to serve the community.
Team rector, Andy Bryant, said: “St Peter’s Church was built to serve a small town but is now serving the second largest town in North Somerset.
As well as a place of worship, this wonderful, flexible space is used for numerous community events and we hope the town will want to join us in helping to unlock the building’s potential.”

Proposed improvements include updating the heating system, providing an additional toilet and improving the kitchen facilities.
Residents are being encouraged to help raise funds for the work and in return will become bronze, silver or gold key holders, receiving a certificate and an entry in a special donors’ book.
