Everything from martial arts to vintage cycles was on offer at March St Wendreda’s autumn fayre at the weekend.

Saturday’s rather dull weather failed to dampen spirits and the event was well supported and raised around £1,000 towards the church’s floor and heating fund.

Entertainment also included dancing, there was a Tae Kwon Do display, a re-enactment group gave an archery demonstration. There were steam engine rides and various games as well as an opportunity to ride a Penny Farthing under the guiding hand of Colin Bedford and his wife Margaret.

The church was filled with the scent of numerous floral displays created by many March organisations, and the church organist played visitors’ requests. There was also a chance to try bell ringing in the tower.

Pet pooches were put through their paces in a dog show and there was also an array of refreshments including cakes.
