Work by lots of different local artists was on display on Friday and Saturday and a total of eight paintings were sold.

Visitors were able to vote for their favourite exhibit with the winning piece of art chosen called ‘Sweetly Scented.’ There was also a prize draw for one lucky person who voted for the winning entry which got the most votes.

Organiser Gill Stubbs said “Both days went really well. We had lots of people turn up including young children.

“In all the years we’ve been hosting the event at the church this is by far the most amount of money we’ve ever raised.”

Refreshments including ploughman’s lunches and tea, coffee and cake were also served up.
