A VILLAGE fete and flower show was hailed as a ‘great success’ by visitors.

The Congresbury fete took place on Saturday afternoon in the St Andrew’s Church paddock, off Church Drive. It formed part of the church’s 800th anniversary celebrations.

Entertainment on offer included a flower competition, a barbecue, a coconut shy, glitter tattoos and bouncy castles. A concert in the evening from Camborne Wind Band also proved to be popular.

Church spokesman Stuart Haggett said: “The fete this year was held for the first time in the church paddock and was considered a great success by almost everyone who attended, as they liked the increased intimacy of the venue.

“One of the people who attended was Congresbury’s oldest resident, 101-year-old Henry Collins. He is a former chorister and gave us a delightful song rendition, and helped to cut the anniversary cake.

“The Camborne Wind Band concert was excellent in the evening and a silent disco at St Andrew’s School gave it some variety.”
