FROM treasure hunts to tombolas, the Blagdon church and village fete had something for everyone on Saturday.

The fete, which was held at the Lakewood Centre, raised money for the Bristol-based Hop, Skip and Jump charity, which provides day care for children with special needs, Backwell-based wheelchair organisation Motivation and St Andrew’s Church.

As well as traditional fete events such as the tombola and hamper raffle, there was also a treasure hunt and cards lucky dip.
