Thousands of people descended on the Hemingfords at the weekend for the annual flower festival and classic car show.
Soaring temperatures and glorious sunshine on Saturday and Sunday saw huge crowds enjoy open gardens, vintage vehicles, bus rides, flower displays, and Morris dancing around the villages.
Organisers said money raised from the event, which is still being counted, will go towards St Margaret's Church, in Hemingford Abbots, and to cover the cost of re-pointing the bell tower.
Funds from last year's event went towards a spiral staircase for the church.
Pam Bartlett, chairman of the flower festival committee, said people came from all over the region to attend the event, including from as far afield as Wales.

She said: "The flower displays this year, on the theme 'the Garden of Eden', were as nice as they have ever been."
The organising committee also brought in a vintage coach from Ramsey firm Dews Coaches to transport people around the villages.
