A huge thanks has been sent to the people of Wimblington for turning out in force to support the church autumn fayre.

A total of £730 was raised at the annual event which will go towards upkeep of St Peter’s Church.

“The turn out on the day was jam packed, we are so pleased to see such community support and also really pleased with the fantastic amount raised to keep the church running.

“A massive thank you to everybody who came and made it such a success.”
