An autumn fundraiser for St Mary’s Church, Hitchin, saw visitors raise over £1,500.
An autumn fundraiser at Hitchin’s historic St Mary’s Church added more than £1,500 to the coffers.
Churchwarden Derry Charman, one of the organisers, said: “The day went really well. We had a steady flow of visitors all day.
“We had 15 tables including second hand books, bric-a-brac, and cards for good causes which drew people in – and we also opened up the bell tower for visitors, which proved very popular.
“We took £185 alone there – the tower gives a great view of the town and adults and children loved going up and ringing the bells.

“I think people liked the fact the fair was actually in the church itself. It helped contribute to a nice atmosphere.
“We have to thank a large number of people for helping make the fair such a success. So many people who helped in so many different ways – it was such a team effort.
