Villagers have helped raise hundreds at a Michaelmas fair in Draycott.
St Peter’s Church, in School Lane, held the annual event for dozens of residents to enjoy.
Games including tombola were put on while guests could sample some delicious cakes and explore a variety of stalls selling everything from jewellery to craft items.
A church spokesman said: “There was plenty of the usual first Saturday coffee and cake, and the very popular harvest ploughman’s lunches.
“The total raised from the refreshments, raffle and donations from the stall holders was £325 – this will be used towards ongoing refurbishment work at the church.
“The church was beautifully decorated ready for the harvest thanksgiving service the next day, with gifts of non-perishable foods for the Loaves and Fishes Project run by the Sisters of the Church in St Paul’s, Bristol.”
