Villagers celebrated the man who Congresbury is named after at a well-attended party at the weekend.
Love Congresbury’s annual St Congar’s Day celebrations were held at St Andrew’s Church on Sunday, with residents enjoying a range of activities and revelling in the village’s history.
Live music and a headphone disco proved popular among the guests, and the traditional conga around the church provided plenty of laughs.
St Congar is believed to have travelled to Congresbury from Wales in the fifth century to form a monastery on Cadbury Hill, and the village was subsequently named after him.
A Love Congresbury spokesman said: “Thank you so much to all the fantastic people who came to support our event. It means a lot to us.”
