A winter wonderland of stalls and family fun raised more than £1,000 for a March church.
The congregation of Trinity Church held their annual winter fayre with a range of stalls and activities to bring in a total of £1,150.58.
Rev George Quarm said: “It was a wonderful turn out with a great programme of activities. The amount of money raised is very impressive.”
On offer on the day was a book stall, plants, jewellery, books, bric a brac, needlework, competitions, flowers, gift ideas, refreshments and a hamper draw.
The money raised will go towards church funds.
