A village church opened its doors to an array of talented artists and craft-makers across the weekend, when it hosted an arts and crafts fair.

St Andrew’s Church, in Congresbury, hosted the fair as part of a heritage trail, which saw more than 100 people pass through the doors of St Andrew’s, the Holy Saviour’s Church in Puxton and St Andrew’s Church in Banwell.

The fair attracted exhibitors from across Somerset and Bristol and was organised by four members of the church.

Organiser Marion Johnson said: “Praise and admiration were expressed by the many people who visited the fair – not only for the stunning images, designs and artefacts, presented by 30 skilled artists and craftspeople, but also for the superb setting of the medieval refectory and its grounds.”
