The people of Bleadon flocked in their hundreds to the village’s Coronation Hall to enjoy a fun day out and to 
raise money for the youth club and Church of St Peter and St Paul.

The event saw around 1,000 people purchase items such as food, drinks, plants and 
bric-a-brac, enjoy live entertainment, play some family games and watch a performance from the Chalice Morris Men.

Youth club treasurer Keith Pyke said the ‘beautiful’ weather attracted a lot of people and it was a ‘blessing’.

He added: “We were selling out of things straight away which is a great sign of a busy day.

“We hope to matched our usual average of around £4,000, as this is the main fundraiser for both and without this event we would not be able to run.”
