A community garden was officially opened by a Nailsea church to celebrate the end of a seven-year refurbishment project.
Revd Chris Hare, Acting Archdeacon for Bath, blessed the garden at Holy Trinity Church before cutting the ribbon.
Members of the church have been raising funds for seven years to update the facilities and make the buildings more accessible to the community.
More than 300 people from the church and community turned up to celebrate the opening of the garden and children from Grove Junior School performed a song.
Sarah Read, operations manager at the church, said: “The garden will now be a space available to use by groups and individuals in the local area.
“We’ve already had visits from schoolchildren who have planted bulbs, which we’re looking forward to seeing flower in the spring. We hope the children will be regular visitors.
