And fine weather meant some of the attractions could be staged outside and a barbecue proved popular.

A spokeswoman said: “We are very pleased with the outcome.

“There was a big turnout and the fair raised a total of £547 for church funds.”

Meanwhile, donations continue to flow in toward the £110,000 needed for renovation of the Hicks church hall – a display board shows amounts ranging from £3 to nearly £50 have been received.
