CROSS stitch, tapestry and pottery was just some of the craft work exhibited at a March church to raise money for its roof restoration fund.

The craft festival returned to St Peter's Church for the first time since the 1980s and ran on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There were 123 exhibits, including two by All Saints' Primary School, five from students at the Neale-Wade Community College and 21 exhibits by Beryl Francis.

Craft products and produce was also sold off throughout the three days, including fresh fruit and vegetables, preserves and cakes, and visitors had the chance to try out ceramic painting.

The craft festival raised more than £1,000 for the roof restoration fund and will now be held every other year, alternating with the church flower festival.
