Eighty villagers sat down to enjoy a four-course meal and plenty of wine in the company of their neighbours on Saturday night as part of the annual harvest supper tradition. A hearty helping of meat and vegetables was served while music was provided by debuting local rhythm and blues band Double Trouble.

The popular autumn event raised £517 for the Friends Of Bleadon Church – a group of people who raise funds for the church through social events.

Friends member Gill Williams said: “I think it went really well, judging by all the smiling faces.”

There was also a raffle, which raised £135, and a hamper of goods was also auctioned, which raised £50.
