A DAY of family fun on bank holiday Monday raised �3,500 for Tipton St John's village church.

The sun shone on the St John the Evangelist church fete, which proved a hit with villagers and visitors as it beat off a drizzly start to the day to secure the vital cash boost.

The event is the church's main fundraiser of the year.

Church warden Lizzi Steel said: "It was a very good day, lots of people came out and we are very thankful to them for their generosity."

The fete featured barbecue lunches, cream teas, a bouncy castle and mini steam engine rides as well as stalls and side-shows.

A 'splat the rat' stall, and book and plant sales were among other highlights.
