The weather has started to brighten up in the past few days and with summer seeming to have finally arrived at long last, the weekend proved the perfect time for a village church fete.

Villagers in Claverham headed along to St Barnabas’ Church, in Jasmine Lane, on Saturday afternoon to enjoy tasty food and fun games.

In recent years the fete has had on the odd occasion needed to be held indoors, but thankfully the weather stayed dry and bright and the fete remained outdoors.

A skittle alley was set up and other activities put on to ensure it was a fun afternoon for the whole family.

A plant sale was also held, but the cream teas were unsurprisingly one of the most popular items on offer throughout the day.
