The stalls raised £800 and with food included the total amount raised was more than £1,000.

David Collision, who is church warden, said: “It went very well.

The money raised will go towards the church’s £60,000 annual costs,

Mr Collision invited March residents to come along and enjoy the church’s peaceful surroundings.

He said: “We have the church open all day everyday for the town’s people to walk in and sit quietly whatever faith they may have.”
