A ‘fantastic’ barn dance raised vital funds for a community café on Saturday evening.
Yatton Village Hall was packed to the rafters as people enjoyed a knees up and a ploughman’s supper.
Dave Francis compered the evening and Fougere Rouge provided excellent entertainment.
Money raised will go to the Strawberry Line Café, at the train station, which employs people with learning difficulties.
Zoe Barker, the café’s manager, believes the money will be a huge help as the poor weather has reduced the number of people popping in.

Approximately £1,000 was raised through ticket sales and a raffle.
