Sidmouth's skyline was full of beautiful kites as part of an annual event celebrating Pentecost.

The Catholic Church welcomed residents of all ages to come and fly their kites on Sunday afternoon.

The sea mist brought a nice gust of wind for the event as families brought along picnics to enjoy in Jacobs Ladder.

Members of the Catholic Church had also prepared a metre long cake to serve to attendees to celebrate the church’s birthday.

The day before, some 30 people had attended a kite making event at St Teresa’s Hall, to make their own designs to bring along to the event.

Jill McGauley, social committee co-ordinator for the church, said: “It went very well, the weather was disappointing as we had the sea mist and it was quite cold. I think we prayed to hard for a bit of wind to keep the kites up but we couldn’t get the balance. There wasn’t just children at the kite making events but adults who were quite happy to say there were making it for themselves.”
