The sun shone as people turned out to enjoy a day of fun and frolics for the St Wendreda’s Autumn fayre in March which raised £1,300.

There were tower tours, a display of martial arts, bell ringing displays, craft stalls and a chance to throw wet sponges at Mayor councillor Rob Skoulding in the stocks.

There was a chance to enter a scarecrow into a prize competition which was won by 10 year old Kezia Towning.

Rev Clifford Stocking, in charge of St Wendreda’s and St John’s churches, said: “It was a really good day, a great turn out and a fantastic fund raising total.”

All money raised will go towards continuing repairs needed on the church roof.
