The Birnbeck Regeneration Trust held a fair at the weekend to raise money for its efforts to restore Weston-super-Mare’s derelict structure.

The event was held at the Boulevard United Reformed Church, in Waterloo Street, on Saturday.

Organiser Rose Barrett said: “We did extremely well and raised more than £550.

“We are very happy with how it went and it was one of our most successful fairs.”

People bought crafts, jewellery and Christmas decorations, and also tucked into homemade cake and tried their luck on the tombola.

The Trust’s next event will take place on Saturday, when a Madness and 1980s tribute act will perform.

The performance will start at 8pm at the working men’s club in Orchard Street.

Tickets, priced £8, are available from Rose on 07597 807008 or from rose.oldpierfundraising@talktalk.net

Tickets will cost £10 if they are bought on the door.
