Good weather at the weekend meant a summer fayre could be held both inside and outside St Denys’ Church in Sleaford.

The Saturday morning event raised £1,300, according to churchwarden Richard Clash who helped set things up.

He said the money will be much needed to go towards ongoing upkeep of the church.

Mr Clash said: “The footfall was very good. We intentionally coincide it with the holding of the monthly farmer’s market.

“We had stalls inside the church and outside from the west door to the gates.”

Stalls sold jewellery, woollens, books, food and plants.
