The day began with an outdoor service and refreshments before welcoming visitors to the fayre. The church looked wonderful with people there to offer a welcome, give out treasure hunt sheets, issue prizes, talk about the church, judge the art competition and serve gallons of tea and coffee.

The Avon Singers provided the opening, pre-interval and final musical entertainment of the evening.
