ARTS and crafts filled Playden Church on Saturday when it hosted a well attended exhibition.
The event was organised by the Friends of the Church to help pay for the upkeep of the historic building.
Marion Lovell, from the Friends, said: “There was beautiful work on display from a huge variety of talented local people.
“Great interest was shown in the signed, limited print run of the special picture by Richard Adams and only five remain. The refreshments were very popular with home made cake available as well as tea and coffee.
“Ryesingers performed a lovely Water Music concert on the Saturday evening to a full church. There were familiar poems too, including The Owl and the Pussycat and Cargoes. Everything had a link to Water Music, and the choir made its entrance to the Sailors’ Hornpipe played on the treble recorder.
“Sincere thanks are offered to everyone who worked so hard and the visitors who came. We are grateful for all the support shown.
“The next event to be organised by The Friends will be the Midsummer Open Gardens on the weekend of June 21 and 22. Come for a stroll around Playden, visit some gardens and have tea and cake to fortify the inner man or woman.
