A number of stalls and activities took place last Saturday, November 21, with all of the money collected being put towards the general upkeep of the church - which is needs to raise £70,000 a year to keep running.

Homemade cakes along with fudge, scones and biscuits proved extremely popular with visitors, who braved the cold to pack into the church hall.

A tombola, bottle stall and craft stands were also on offer, with many stallholders donning festive hats and enjoying the friendly atmosphere.

Canon Bob Baker said raising £1,200 was a 'very good outcome, considering the weather wasn't very good'.

He added: 'We didn't have as many people as usual, but those who came had a great time and contributed to church funds. This annual fayre was running before I came, and that was 21 years ago. Although the weather did put some people off, we are really grateful for the support of the people that did come.'
