St Michael's and All Angel's Church in Langtoft puts on their summer fair

Hundreds of people took advantage of the good weather on Saturday (June 1) to attend the Langtoft Church Summer Fair.

St Michael and All Angel's Church in the village and a garden next door were filled with people taking part in an array of activities.

Judy Robinson, churchwarden, said: "It was brilliant and we took over £1,500 in the afternoon.

"We were blessed with the weather - there was no wind.

"It was your typical traditional village fete really - it was spread out across two venues and there were lots of stalls outside.

"Obviously we had activities in the church but also a garden next door.

"The fair was raising money for the upkeep of the church because it is quite costly to maintain.

"We had plants, bric-a-brac, refreshments, competitions, toys and a teddy bear's tombola for the children and that was a fun one.

"There were also two raffles, an adult tombola, a BBQ and live musical entertainment.

"We had a lot of people come along - we had seats for 32 people to have tea and they were pretty full."

Judy praised organiser Clare Harbour for organising the fair and putting in the time to get it done.

Clare, said: "I thought we catered well for everyone and we wanted it to be a fun day for everyone.

"We also had the PCSO doing fingerprints and mug-shots which was really fun and interesting.

"Hopefully we can build on the success of this year and keep growing it.

"I'd like to thank all the local businesses for supporting us because we wouldn't have been able to do it without them and also everyone who helped out and came along

"It was a really good pull-together from the whole community."
