Villagers showed off their creative skills at the weekend, as Congresbury’s heritage was celebrated.
St Congar’s Day was celebrated on Sunday, with people gathering to revel in the village’s rich history.
St Congar was an abbot who founded a monastery at Cadbury Hill in the sixth century, and the village was later named after him.
To mark the occasion, a creative challenge was set at St Andrew’s Church, tasking villagers with making Congresbury buildings with nothing but rubbish.
Landmarks including the church and the Millennium Bridge were recreated, with all of the cardboard buildings forming a model village.
The event was organised by Love Congresbury, which hosts events throughout the year with the hope of bringing the community together.
A spokesman said: “Thank you for a great St Congar’s Day.
“The model village will remain in the church for a few days so please come to have a look.”
