A CHURCH fund received a boost after a well attended autumn fair.

Langley Community Church on Breach Road raised £650 when it opened its doors to the public last week.

Congregation members baked a plethora of cakes and laid on raffle prizes for the event, which has helped top up the church’s funds after it received a new roof in August.

It was the first time the building has been given a structural makeover since opening its doors 151 years ago.

Among the stalls on offer at the fair were a craft stall, a ‘truly scrumptious’ tombola full of tasty prizes and an Avon stall.

According to church elder Joan Soar, 75, of Kew Crescent, Heanor, this year’s event was the biggest the 15-strong congregation have staged.

She said: “It was really good. We are small church. There’s not many members, but we all pull together.”
