The Tennessee Toots jazz band helped to get fundraisers in the mood and take their mind off the rain on Saturday when Tony and Jill Clingo hosted a garden party at their Pinfold House home.

Around 125 people attended the Upwell event held to raise money for St Peter’s Church in Upwell.

Tony, who is a church warden, hopes the garden party will have raised over £1,600 towards the building fund.

Garden party-goers paid £10 a head and tucked into a hog roast followed by strawberries and cream and there were refreshments.

This is the second time Tony and Jill have held such an event, the previous one was a few years ago. They had two marquees in the garden and the party started around 6pm and finished about 10pm.
