Friends of Berrow village hall organised a spring craft fair in the hall, in Parsonage Road, with all proceeds going towards its upkeep.

Co-organiser, Lynn Smith, said: “I would like to thank all the visitors who came and gave money to help keep the building running.

“We had a great range of crafts available, from textiles, paintings, driftwood art and a lovely spread from Burnham dolls house group, and it was great to see such a wide variety.”

“We aim to organise another fair for the summer and want to raise even more money this time.”
