Church-goers and villagers turned out to show support for their community’s church when it hosted its annual summer fair at the weekend.

The popular event took place at Holy Trinity Church, in Cleeve, on Saturday afternoon.

The fun-filled afternoon featured a range of activities for guests of all ages to take part in. Children enjoyed a modern version of the classic tin can alley game – complete with Nerf guns – while a tombola was also a big hit with visitors throughout the day.

In addition, people visiting the Main Road church were also able to tuck into tasty cream teas and cakes throughout the afternoon, while others enjoyed browsing plants and books which were being sold on the day.

The fete raised money to put towards church funds.

Last year’s event raised more than £600, which organisers put towards redecorating Holy Trinity’s main room.
