A Cam­bus­lang church raised over £2000 at its an­nual Christ­mas fayre de­spite hor­ren­dous weather at the week­end.

Res­i­dents flocked to the Flem­ing­ton and Hall­side Parish Church in Half­way on Satur­day to enjoy some of the fes­tive fun in spite of Storm Des­mond’s best ef­forts to ruin the day.

Along with stalls sell­ing gifts and baked goods there were also ac­tiv­i­ties and games for the kids to get into the Christ­mas spirit.

Rev Neil Glover was happy with how the day turned out.

He said: “We were de­lighted with the re­sponse to our Christ­mas Fayre, es­pe­cially given the ter­ri­ble weather that there was on Satur­day.

“Once again the halls were crowded with peo­ple pick­ing up Christ­mas gifts and en­joy­ing the ex­cel­lent home bak­ing.

“We had a great team of peo­ple putting the event to­gether, and were hugely grate­ful to raise £2,921 on the day, with the to­tal ris­ing through the week.”

We’ll have more pic­tures from the fayre next week.
