Congresbury residents turned out in numbers at the weekend to celebrate a famous figure from the village’s past.
A large crowd enjoyed the annual St Congar’s Day celebrations at St Andrew’s Church on Sunday.
Guests were treated to live music and a silent disco, plus a range of Christmas-themed activities.
The event was capped off with a conga around the grounds of the church.
St Congar is believed to have travelled to Congresbury from Wales in the fifth century to form a monastery on Cadbury Hill, and the village was subsequently named after him.
A Love Congresbury spokesman said: “Thank you so much to all the fantastic people who came to support our event. It means a lot to us.”
