AXBRIDGE Village fete raised £2,600 as it managed to escape the weekend’s wet weather.
The fete, held at The Court in Mary Street, saw 400 people turn out to raise money for church funds.
There was entertainment from Axbridge First School pupils, who danced around the maypole.
There were a range of stalls, face-painting and a raffle.
Reverend Tim Hawkins said: “It was a great day and I am delighted that the weather didn’t ruin it.
“It was nice to see people come, enjoy themselves and sit on the lawn.”
