People in a North Somerset village enjoyed the warm weather while helping a church raise hundreds of pounds at the weekend.

A spring fair was held at Uphill Methodist Church, in Uphill Road South, on Saturday.

People were able to enjoy a cup of coffee and a cake, browse and buy a variety of bric-a-brac, play games and take part in raffles and tombolas.

Church steward Patricia Bidmead said: “There was a good constant flow of people throughout the day and the fair tied in nicely with other events in the village, including the village market.

“The tea, coffee and cakes were well received and it was quite busy throughout the day.

“We made around £300 and there is still money coming in.”

Money raised will go towards much-needed development at the church, which first opened in 1847.

The church will host a coffee morning on Saturday at 10.30am to continue its fundraising efforts.
