Hundreds showcased their hobbies and love of crafts at Fenstanton United Reform Church on Saturday.
More than 150 stalls set up at the church for its annual Hobbies, Craft and Collectors day.
Church elder Jean Ding said: “The event went very well and it was well attended; I thought it was a lovely day.”
Within the church grounds visitors were given the chance to take watch skilled craftsmen making willow fencing, talk to experts about knitting and admire those using a traditional spinning wheel.
Now in its ninth year the display of exhibitors spilt out of the church grounds and onto the village green.
Mrs Ding added: “Outside the church walls we had a collection of vintage and classic cars which people enjoyed looking at.”
In total the day raised £780 towards the church fund.
