Falmouth's United Reformed Church raised over £400 in their Spring Fair, and the newly found funds will go towards the upkeep of the building.

Members of the church usually hold a summer fair, but decided to host an earlier event to avoid clashing with competitors.

Around 40 people turned up to the fair, and guests had the chance to browse the stalls of books, jewellery, and toiletries.

The fair was organised by members of the church including Sue Philpott, who enjoys organising the events so much that she keeps a stock of items in the spare room of her house, always ready for the next sale.

Sue, 67, a retired shorthand typist from Falmouth, said: "We had all the usual stalls for the Spring Fair, including a tombola, stalls selling clothing and books, and a raffle.

"It was brilliant, we always have a nice time. Me and my husband help organise it and we have been doing for years because we enjoy it so much.

"We get our regulars in because they know they get a good bargain when they are here.

"The next one is in November and that will be our Christmas sale where we will be selling all the usual things, but the tombola will be Christmas themed.

"I plan from one sale to the next, it's very important.

"Before we would make over £1,000 but that was when more people came to the church. Now it's very important to the treasurer because all the money we raise goes towards to the upkeep of the church.

"I'd like to say thank you to everyone who helped to organise the sale."
