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.
