The church opened its doors for the popular festival which this year had the theme children’s books.

There were around 20 displays and in addition local people held an open gardens event.

All of it was organised to raise money for church funds to help the roof fund.

There was live music in the church on Saturday and Sunday afternoon and on Saturday night was a talent show.
