Dozens of villagers enjoyed a well-attended fair at the weekend, with 17 artists showing off excellent creations.
Congresbury residents flocked to St Andrew’s Church on Saturday to enjoy a spring show which featured a super selection of arts and crafts.
Many top-class crafters showcased their work, with villagers able to get their hands on pretty paintings, masterful metal creations and wonderful wood carvings among a wide range of things for sale.
Cleeve couple Paul and Renate O’Donnell, who are well known for their charity craft exhibits, delighted revellers with an interesting range of crafts, and Reneé Kilburn’s ceramic flowers certainly caught the eye of people in attendance.
Popular stalls were also hosted by John Roberts, Barbara Webber and Suzy Hannabuss.
The fair was organised by Friends of St Andrew’s Church, in a bid to generate funds to help maintain the church and refectory.
