HANDICRAFTS of all sorts were on show at St John's parish church of Saturday.

A good crowd turned out for the event, which was organised to raise money for church funds.

Hand-made jewellery, books and bags were just some of the items on show, while children had a chance to make their own craft gifts with Crocodile Creations.

Jane Askew, who organised the event with Sue Bale and Catherine Templeton, said: "This church was consecrated in 1371, although it's been here longer than that, so there's always something to be done here.

"A few years ago we raised over £200,000 for the tower appeal and more recently we bought a new sound system. "
