Congresbury residents turned out this week to support a fundraiser for a new village hall.
The recreation club held a coffee morning and activity day on Saturday – raising £475.
Congresbury Youth Partnership held an art session, while the tennis club put people through their paces.
The event was organised by Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust.
Spokesman Ron Hall said: “We did a road test with a proper coffee machine and sold cakes.
“It was a really positive event.”
Mr Hall said new facilities in Congresbury are ‘vital’.
He added: “The facilities were built for a village 50 years ago, so we need a new multifunctional facility in the heart of the village as a community hub.”
