AN event to raise money for a church’s damaged tower was held at the weekend.

Youngsters took part in a miniature garden competition and stalls and a raffle were held to raise some of the £150,000 needed to fix the 600-year-old St Congar’s Church in Badgworth.

The church, in Church Lane, has a cracked tower and is in desperate need of repair.

Flowers were also displayed in the church over Sunday and Monday as well as a ploughman’s lunch for the ‘feast of flowers’ event.

Organiser Bev Hearn said: “People wrote in the visitor book that there were super displays and sumptuous food. That says it all really.”
